Teachers’ workshop series: professional practice: This is a series of three workshops drawing on the Standards for the Teaching Profession as a key point of reference. You can access this in two ways: a series of three 2 hour evening workshops or a whole day Saturday workshop covering material from all three sessions. Workshops will include discussion about how evidence of your teaching practice might be used to inform your future decisions and to demonstrate the standards for appraisal and certification. Each workshops stands alone but they are designed so, that together, they support all aspects of professional practice, as defined by the standards. This workshop series is designed for teachers wishing to gain a greater understanding of the Standards for the Teaching Profession in practice, including provisionally certificated teachers.
Teachers’ workshop series: curriculum and pedagogy: This is a series of related workshops that explore key aspects of teaching practice, curriculum and pedagogy with a focus on assessment, planning and evaluation. The PLD is presented in two modes: a series of five 2-hour evening workshops or two Saturday workshops. Although maximum benefit will be gained by participants attending all five sessions, each of the workshops is designed to stand alone. Participants can choose any combination or all of the sessions as they wish.
Leaders’ workshops: We offer a range of workshops for professional leaders and those aspiring to leadership roles. These workshops cover a range of popular topics supporting leaders to enact their roles effectively.
Any of the above workshops can also be provided in your centre. We can facilitate a workshop for your teaching team or you could host a workshop with a focus relevant to you and invite other centres/teachers to attend. Centres who have worked in this way have often covered the cost in return for providing the venue and liaising with inspirED ECE to organise the workshop. InspirED ECE is able to support you to advertise the workshop.
