Designed by OLEVI and facilitated by experienced school leaders and teachers, the Outstanding Teacher Programme (OTP) gives good and outstanding teachers a set of high level skills and strategies that enable them to become consistently and sustainably outstanding. Utilised in the London and City Challenge Projects and endorsed by the National College, the OTP has gained a national reputation for raising standards in teaching and learning.
The programme is facilitated over a 10 week period and consists of two full days, 5 x 1/2 day sessions, plus 3 sessions of in-school practice where peer planning and observation can take place.
Secondary schools need to release three teachers for the programme as coaching takes place in learning 3s; PRUs, primary and special schools prefer to release one teacher as members of the primary learning 3s can come from local cluster schools.
The Outstanding Teacher Programme:
- provides in-depth coaching to deepen teachers’ understanding of outstanding classroom practice. Participants improve through facilitated practice activities as structured opportunities to reflect on teaching approaches and their quality and impact
- introduces and consolidates new knowledge and skills, and focus on what makes teaching and learning outstanding
- requires learning 3s to prepare and present at an outstanding level to the whole delegate group for evaluation against DR ICE®
- forms part the school’s professional development provision as this supports the implementation of agreed best practice and national agendas
- provides strong input on the progression against the professional standards of excellence. This programme is crucial for teachers involved in developing Leadership in Teaching and Learning
To provide teachers with:
- the ability to demonstrate higher level understanding of teaching and improve learning for their pupils
- the ability to coach colleagues and pupils in their own school and in other schools to raise performance levels
- the ability to create a proactive school culture where the quality of teaching and learning is openly observed, discussed, challenged and enhanced
- increased professional satisfaction and create opportunities for further leadership and career progression
Applicants need to demonstrate:
- strong commitment to Teaching and Learning and show that they are inspiring individuals with strong interpersonal skills and who are role models for students
- some recognition that indicates that they have the ability to become outstanding teachers
- a commitment to professional development and the ability to truly reflect on their practice, including using student feedback to evaluate the impact of their teaching
