  • Developing practice (2): The i2i Outstanding Teacher Programme

    14th January 2014

    After a long day's teaching back in September I rushed along the corridor of, worried I was going to be late for my first OTP session. Originally I had felt privileged to have been selected to join the programme, and had been optimistic about the idea of external training specifically designed to develop my teaching. Now, as I weaved through the excited groups of students, all heading home, I thought slightly sceptically about the programme:  Would I be too busy for this? Would it help?

  • Raising the quality of teaching and learning

    13th May 2014

    Professional development at Weydon has taken many forms over the years. We have worked in triads, had motivational speakers during INSET and had programmes tailored to the needs of specific groups of staff. Last year we worked in triads again.
