Launch of Video and Coaching Project to Support Teachers’ Professional Development

Posted on September 26 2017

Here at Forest Park, we recognise that our staff are fundamental in enabling us to provide an exceptional learning experience for our pupils. One of the benefits of being part of Bellevue Education is the professional development opportunities available to staff. 

Over the past 12 months, Sam Selby, Education Director at Bellevue Education, has been piloting a project focused on developmental CPD through coaching and the use of video technology to enable teachers to reflect on and develop their teaching practice. This has been trialled in two schools and, alongside this, Sam developed training for teachers who would be leading the initiative, across all schools in the Bellevue group.
Following a successful year, the project is now being launched across the group and on 15th September, Mrs Carasco and Mrs Moores attended the third of four Coaching and Feedback training sessions to support them in implementing this programme at Forest Park. The training has focused on how reflecting on teaching practice positively impacts pupils’ learning and highlighted the importance of coaching for teacher development. It also enabled Mrs Carasco and Mrs Moores to practice coaching techniques so that they can lead peer coaching with their colleagues and develop the capacity in all staff to coach each other. The model of coaching also enhances how teachers interact in their own questioning with pupils, enabling pupils to think more critically about their learning. 

We look forward to sharing further updates and feedback about this project in future newsletters.
