‘Into Astrea’ NQT, RQT and new colleagues (EVENT FULL)
The ‘Into Astrea’ Programme is a course that will challenge all participants to reflect on and improve their own practice and craft their teaching. The programme is designed to develop knowledge and skills in all areas of teaching and learning and specific aspects of subject knowledge. The programme will support all NQTs to achieve full QTS status, but is similarly appropriate for recently qualified teachers and those who want to reinvest in their practice. Sessions cover a wide range of core areas and offer participants the opportunity to develop their understanding and practice through:
A thorough understanding of the Astrea Standard
Best practice approaches from across the Trust
Access to the latest research and thinking on teacher and subject pedagogy.
Practical resources they can take and use in their classrooms
Access to outstanding experienced practitioners for Q&A around each focus area
Opportunities to network and liaise with their peers and other professionals .
Beyond event projects to implement the learning from the programme into their own practice
Understanding Data for SENCOs (South Yorkshire)
With opportunities for practical learning, SENCOs will be introduced to the different levels of data analysis that can support and inform strategic SEND leadership and school improvement. This half-day session introduces delegates to analysing: published exit data from Analyse School Performance; internal school level data; individual pupil level progress data and SEND interventions through provision mapping. By the end of the session, delegates should feel more confident and equipped to complete SEND data analysis within their own setting.
