Teacher Effectiveness Enhancement Programme (TEEP)

Effective Teaching for Effective Learning

TEEP woke us up, made us feel like NQTs again, gave us a new confidence, it changed our whole ethos and it made us fall in love with teaching again.

The SSAT Teacher Effectiveness Enhancement Programme (TEEP) is a teaching and learning framework that is proven to improve teaching and school outcomes. TEEP provides continuing professional learning for teachers and develops collective teacher efficacy which has been shown to have significant impact on teaching and learning. The TEEP framework draws on significant research, best practice and evidence that has identified what is required of teachers and learners in order to gain the best learning outcomes possible.

TEEP inspires a collaborative culture and establishes high quality teaching and learning across your school or organisation. The TEEP framework is flexible, not prescriptive. The framework validates teachers’ expertise while providing insight into inspiring and effective teaching strategies, which nurture lifelong learners and improve pedagogical practice.

SSAT’s Deep Learning for Social Justice

Download the free pamphlet, explore how a refocus on deep learning can help achieve a more socially-just and equitable education system. It considers the roles of metacognition, self-determination and formative assessment in helping students learn deeply.

Who is TEEP for?

TEEP is designed for all school staff who want to develop their own and their colleagues’ teaching practice, reflecting on existing strategies that are working well and building on what could be even better.

TEEP training is now available in a range of formats which will be discussed and agreed with schools, to ensure a best fit for the school’s context. The starting point therefore is the consultation, where schools can expand on their context, discuss potential solutions with an SSAT TEEP expert and start planning for teaching and learning improvement.

All TEEP training is offered as in-person, a hybrid approach of in-person and online or open courses. All training is based on the TEEP framework, placing the teacher in the role of learner, ‘modelling the model’ to enable rich metacognition for all participants.

Whole school TEEP

  • Whole schools – all staff who drive teaching and learning in a school.
  • Cohorts of practitioners – from a school or cluster of schools, designed depending on the practitioners’ requirements.

TEEP Open course

  • Small groups – teacher learning communities in a school or cluster of schools.
  • Individuals – individuals at any stage of their career to advance their pedagogical effectiveness.

TEEP Level 3 Trainer Course

This course is designed to help you develop a deep understanding of the TEEP model, gain the skills, knowledge and attributes of an effective TEEP trainer and gain the facilitation skills to deliver Level 1 training for your school and the TEEP programme itself.

After the initial three day training course participants will then assist an experienced trainer on a whole school course to develop the skills and confidence to then deliver training alone.

Pre-requisites: Participants must work in a school that has either implemented TEEP or be on the journey to implementation. Individuals should be in a position of being able to influence teaching approaches based on their understanding of the learner.

Outcomes: At TEEP Learning Support level, participants will:

  • Identify and apply the TEEP model with learners.
  • Recognise and evaluate strategies to support TEEP effective learning behaviours.

How the TEEP framework is structured

TEEP provides a structure to guide and support more effective teaching and learning and an understanding of the learning process for teacher and learner.

The TEEP framework is made up of three components represented in the TEEP model diagram:

  1. Whole school level: Effective teacher and learner behaviours.
  2. Curriculum level: The five underpinning elements of effective practice.
  3. Classroom level: The TEEP learning cycle.
