Teacher Development Programme

This strand – around pedagogy, practice and professional knowledge – is being delivered on behalf of the ETF by teams at Derby and Sheffield Hallam universities and Cognition Education.

The element focusing on pedagogy will have two parts.

  1. The first will consist of online modules delivered across interactive digital resources, videos, thinking points and further reading. It is aimed at both new teachers and more experienced practitioners who wish to refresh or update their knowledge.
  2. Further modules will concentrate on recent innovations in pedagogy.

The element focusing on practice will offer videos to help tutors upskill and refresh their teaching.

The third element – focusing on professional knowledge – will feature films of professional experts that will provide guidance on making the most of industry placements.

Underpinning this strand will be support to embed maths, English and digital skills in different learning environments. Drawing on best practice from other ETF programmes, this activity will focus on how each T Level route and pathway can embed the teaching of these core skills.

Delivered on behalf of the ETF by Claire Collins Consultancy and the West Midlands Centre for Excellence in Teacher Training (WMCETT), it will include training events on the principles of embedding, training courses and follow-up interactive webinars focused on each skill area, and courses delivered on the ETF’s Foundation Online Learning site.

The online resources being created as part of this activity will be accessible on the ETF’s Foundation Online Learning site. Please note that you will need to be logged in to access this content.
