Teaching and Learning

Teaching is the most important profession for our nation’s future.

Schools need a CPD choice that is proven to work, backed by rigorous academic research and evidence from the classroom which drives high impact where it counts – in the classroom.

Developing a culture of high quality teaching and learning in schools, SSAT’s Teaching and Learning Programmes, including the Teacher Effectiveness Enhancement Programme (TEEP), Lead Practitioner Programme (LP) and more, support both progression and sustainability for individuals and schools – improving the quality of the school workforce, developing the knowledge, skills and mindsets of educators irrespective of their role in school.

Rigorously independently evaluated, all of our programmes deliver a thorough and sustained system for transforming teaching and learning, underpinned by our core beliefs:

  • Teaching and Learning is complex
  • Teachers are highly skilled professionals and learners
  • All teachers and students have the talent and potential to grow
  • Great teachers know, care and have time for their learners
  • Learners should be on a journey towards co-constructing their own learning
  • All learning should be an active process with challenge

With collaboration and expert challenge at their core, building on existing expertise in schools to help teachers reimagine pedagogical practice and achieve consistently effective teaching that goes far beyond training, SSAT’s teaching and learning programmes are the definitive choice for your whole school.
