Do you know what the golden thread of teaching and learning looks like in your subject, department or secondary school? This workshop is aimed at leaders of teaching and learning and will offer practical advice for how you can ensure consistency in curriculum delivery and teaching and learning practice – while at the same time allowing individual teachers the autonomy they need to support their students and lead their classrooms. The workshop will consider your long and medium term curriculum planning – how is that consistent across your subject, department or school? When you walk into a classroom, how can we ensure a consistent approach without stifling our teachers – from how you start the lesson, model learning and encourage oracy to work in books and retrieval assessment strategies? How does the teaching and learning incorporate and reflect the culture, vision and values of your school? When you undertake learning walks, what are the golden threads of teaching and learning for you?
