Continuing Professional Development

The Pan Enfield Alliance will run a number of CPD courses for the academic year 2017-18.  Key training programmes are:

The Outstanding Teacher Programme (OTP): Developing consistently outstanding lessons through innovative approaches to methodologies. The course will be run in the Autumn Term over 7 days, with a maximum of 15 delegates per course.  Hosting and lesson observations will be shared by Highlands and Wilbury Schools and staff will design and conduct an in-school project aimed at enhancing the progress of students in lessons, having observed practice in both primary and secondary settings.  They will also be engaged in the coaching of students and colleagues (Facilitated through Olevi) to maximise the potential of all.

The Early Outstanding Teacher Programme (EOTP): This is primarily aimed at colleagues who are within the first 3 years of their career and who are keen to develop their career within that time – this is a perfect programme to lead into the full Outstanding Teacher Programme.  Hosting and lesson observation will be shared by Highlands and Wilbury Schools and staff will design and conduct an in-school project aimed at enhancing the progress of students in lesson, having observed practice in both primary and secondary settings.

National Professional Qualification for Middle Leaders (NPQML): Developing leadership attributes in Middle Leaders.  We will be delivering the third cohort in the alliance for 2017-18 comprising 2 days of face-to-face sessions at Highlands School, 1 elective module at UCL IOE and an in-school collaborative project with a focus on the principles of leadership. This includes a significant write-up of the project for full accreditation.  This course can also lead to 30 Masters credits (in conjunction with UCL IoE). https://www.gov.uk/national-professional-qualification-for-middle-leadership-npqml

Training programme for secondary autism.

“Durants are working with other partners across Enfield to develop a more cohesive training programme and provision map to support all children and young people with autism in Enfield. The training programme will be based around the Autism Education Trust standards which are recognised nationally. To develop provision we are looking introduce the following:

  • Have a leading practitioner for autism in each mainstream school
  • Extend Additional Resourced Provision into more schools
  • Develop additional school places for pupils who require more specialised provision.”
