The highly effective and motivating Outstanding Teacher Programme (OTP) and Creative Teacher Programme (CTP) will give you a set of high level skills and strategies to augment your classroom practice.
The Outstanding Teaching Assistant Programme (OTAP) will develop your potential as a Teaching Assistant to have a wider impact on improving the quality of teaching and learning across the school.
Our OLEVI accredited programmes are facilitated by dynamic and experienced school leaders and teachers in schools across the Athelstan Trust and the local school community. Whether you are looking for ideas to enhance your practice, challenge yourself to improve your classroom skills or want to influence teaching and learning beyond your classroom; these programmes will support you in developing your expertise. These programmes are held in a variety of locations across Wiltshire and Gloucestershire so you will not have to travel too far.
Outstanding Teacher Programme
This programme is open to teachers with the potential and capacity to deliver consistently good and outstanding lessons and who will take key ideas and skills back to their school to share, or even lead, on some teaching and learning initiatives either within their department/faculty or across the school.
Creative Teacher Programme
We know that after a period in the classroom post PGCE and ECT years, we all like to take the time to reflect on our practice. So whether you are in your second year of teaching, returning to teaching or want to refresh your classroom skills, the Creative Teacher Programme will meet your needs.
Outstanding Teaching Assistant Programme
This programme is for teaching assistants who are, or who have the potential to be, outstanding in their roles. Participants will gain confidence in feeling able to voice their views and ideas, and feel empowered to take the lead in their development as “learning assistants”.
Feedback from previous delegates
Very worthwhile course. All TAs would benefit from attending this programme. The facilitators were fantastic!
A really excellent course. I feel more secure in my existing practice, but also challenged to develop further.
I have not had any training that I found as useful since my excellent PGCE course. It felt like going back to re-visit the fundamental principles of the job and has revitalised my practice. Many thanks.
This was a really great course. IT was a wonderful opportunity to improve my own teaching and make me feel really positive about planning lessons. There are so many fun activities to do!
The course facilitators were fantastic. Being able to share some of their very good practice and advice, while still allowing delegates to consider what models to introduce into their teaching to benefit our practice was invaluable. Although being coached in such areas is important, it also useful to glean as much guidance from outstanding practitioners as possible and this programme did just that.
