The Inspiring Teacher Programme

This national programme, delivered locally, is designed for classroom teachers and those who want to advance, develop and improve their teaching practice and deliver consistently good lessons, to reach the next teaching level.

The course enables teachers to:

  • provide their students with the best possible learning experience,
  • improve standards in their classrooms and schools,
  • increase their job satisfaction and quality of experience,
  • work more effectively as active members of their school team.

Delivered by:

The programmes are based in school and facilitated by middle and senior leaders, who are also practising and reflective teachers, with nationally recognised accreditation to deliver the programmes.

What does the course involve?

The ITP  runs over a six week period where participants attend Silverdale School for one full day each week. In this time they observe lessons and reflect on their own practice. There is the opportunity to plan collaboratively and it is expected that participants will teach lessons and be observed in their own setting between sessions.

Commitment from the participating member of staff:

Attend Silverdale School for the appropriate sessions. Resources in school to plan lessons and school-based mentor to discuss ideas.

Possible progression:

ITP leads naturally to OTP after a suitable period of time. OTP leads to further coaching qualifications and to Outstanding Facilitators Programme. OTP will help secure outstanding teaching and learning and therefore prepares participants for leadership of teaching and learning.
