The Teacher Effectiveness Enhancement Programme (TEEP) draws on significant research that has identified what is required of teachers and of learners, in order for them to gain the best learning outcomes possible.
ESTYN’s message is that excellent teaching is not about a one-size-fits-all concept of what an excellent lesson looks like. Essentially, teachers can decide how to teach – so long as they can evidence sustained and sustainable teaching approaches that ensure students are engaged, learning well and making excellent progress over time.
TEEP helps teachers translate and embed effective evidence-based practices including consistent approaches to developing literacy, numeracy and tackling disadvantage into their classrooms. It is not another initiative or one-off course, but an ongoing school-driven approach to deep learning for all. The focus shifts from ‘what and how will teachers teach?’ to ‘what and how will students learn?’

The TEEP model of effective teaching for effective learning is a framework with a strong pedagogical foundation, to support a consistent approach to teaching and learning. The model draws on significant research that has identified what is required of teachers and of learners in order for them to gain the best learning outcomes possible. The model is made up of three significant components:
- Effective teacher behaviours and effective learner behaviours
- The five underpinning elements of effective practice
- The TEEP learning cycle
‘As a Headteacher it was a fantastic opportunity to spend 3 days with all teachers in the school and to talk about teaching and learning. As a school we will fully adopt the TEEP model and have already set priorities in The School Improvement Plan in Appraisal targets.’
‘It (TEEP) has revolutionised my approach – colleagues are talking about lessons (across subjects) in the corridors! Unheard of in the past!’
