Achieving Outstanding Teaching, Training & Learning

There are no open events scheduled for this topic. It may be run as an open event again in the future. Alternatively, we can run it as a bespoke internal event for your organisation.


Meeting the Challenge of the 2012 Common Inspection Framework

Many Training and Learning Provider Organisations have policies, procedures and processes designed to improve the quality and effectiveness of teaching, training and learning.  These usually include:

However well-developed these processes are, they are unlikely on their own, to deliver “Outstanding Teaching, Learning and Assessment” or even meaningful improvements in overall standards and effectiveness.

Delivering significant improvement and/or achieving outstanding quality requires a far more holistic approach. This means considering improvement in teaching and learning both from both a strategic perspective and also from a highly practical and pragmatic, operational perspective ie. what is actually happening on the ground in lessons.

This holistic approach should address the improvement of teaching and training through a broad and diverse range of processes that interelate and combine to deliver genuine success.  Each and every process needs to be considered and cohesive development strategies implemented.  These strategies cover everything from how tutors and trainers are recruited, monitored, supported and developed, to how outstanding practice is identified and spread throughout the organisation.

This one-day workshop explores the key processes to be considered and demonstrates how they need to dovetail together, forming an overarching performance-management strategy to deliver outstanding teaching, training and learning

For Whom

This workshop has been designed for managers in organisations who have responsibility for improving the standards of teaching and training.  This includes representatives from organisations delivering training to third parties through private and public funding, as well as those with responsibility for in-house staff training.

Internal Staff Training and Development

This training workshop, along with most of our other best practice training workshops, can be delivered as an internal training course at your premises. Even with groups as small as 6-8 delegates, the course fees per person for internal training workshops can be lower than for open events. The potential savings are even greater, if the travel time and the travel costs of the delegates are included.

Running training workshops internally is very convenient and it allows the participants to explore how key issues will impact on them and their organization. Then as a team they can begin to agree upon a development action plan, with priorities. This approach is favoured by many of our clients as it combines a high quality service with excellent value for money and is a highly effective route for staff development.
