Creative Teacher Programme

The Creative Teacher Programme - CTP is designed by Olevi and facilitated by experienced school leaders and teachers.
 
The highly effective and motivating Creative Teacher Programme equips teachers, who want to grow their practice, a set of skills and strategies to enhance their craft, adding more value in the classroom. Utilised in the London and City Challenge Projects and endorsed by the then National College, the CTP (formally known as the Improving Teacher Programme, ITP) has gained a national reputation for raising standards in teaching and learning. 
 
Objectives
 
To enable teachers to:
  •  Provide their pupils 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.
  •  Be more reflective and creative in their craft.
Vision
 
To give the teaching profession the tools and strategies; challenge and inspiration to engage in excellence – raising the quality of teaching practice to ensure every student in every school enjoys outstanding teaching and learning outcomes.
The Creative Teacher Programme:
 
  • Provides teachers with in-depth coaching, tailored to a self-assessment of their teaching. It provides opportunities to deepen their understanding of high-quality classroom practice and teaching and learning. Participants improve their teaching through facilitated practice, observation of colleagues and working with ‘live’ students.
  • Supports a wider range of teaching activities, including: planning lessons, learning activities, reviewing learning, questioning techniques, engaging in learning, challenging learning, assessment and feedback, and differentiation strategies.
  • Builds confidence of staff to be resilient, reflective and confident practitioners.
Eligibility
 
This programme is open to all teachers who want to develop their teaching practice.
Commitment
 
The programme consists of 5 x 1/2 day facilitated sessions over a six week period.  The development of these teachers is supported by a coach at each school who attends the first and final session, and supports the teachers’ progress through the programme in their schools. This is an important coaching role that is pivotal to the success of the delegates.
 
The course is Olevi accredited and upon completion you will receive a certificate if you attend all sessions.
Feedback from previous delegates:
 
"It has really improved my self-reflection and awareness of myself in the classroom which has improved my behaviour management and questioning."
