Inevitably, with the advent of digital technologies, SSAT have identified an opportunity to re-purpose the wealth of evidence-informed content and research backed resource in the TEEP training programme along with the expertise of its cadre of TEEP trainers to provide an alternative to the regular model of whole school face to face training which requires 3 full days of on-site training at Level 1.
TEEP Online is level 1 TEEP training re-imagined for the digital world. Utilising robust technology and a pedagogically sound approach to remote learning, SSAT have produced an online training programme for Level 1 TEEP training and certification.
Fully facilitated by expert TEEP trainers, the TEEP Online course offers a wealth of activity and resource to ensure that all participants have the opportunity to engage with stimulating content, take the time to reflect, discuss and shape their thinking, translating TEEP principles to their own context.
What to expect
Participants in TEEP Online will experience a range of activities:
- Information pages: packed with the latest research and evidence of what works, all grounded within the TEEP framework for ease of access and application.
- Discussion Forums: An opportunity to collaborate with colleagues within and beyond your school, facilitated by TEEP experts.
- Resource library: accessible beyond the course timeline, consisting of documents, templates, learning procedures and TEEP community resources for use in the classroom.
- Feedback: Regular opportunities to feedback and feedforward ensuring TEEP training enhances practice – not a bolt on!
- My Portfolio: A Learning journal and portfolio powered by Mahara, allowing reflective thinking and portfolio curation from your practice.
The Level 1 course is a 10-week programme of online study, with translation to context and application to practice as a golden thread throughout.
The online programme consists of six parts, each part interspersed with an opportunity to translate theory into practice and reviewing progress before moving on.
Part 1: This full day’s live training over video conference includes the introduction of the online course environment which will support TEEP understanding over the next 12 months. By the end of this day, participants will have a thorough grounding in the TEEP Cycle and have produced their first TEEP lesson plan, ready for implementation in the coming weeks.
approx. 2 weeks implementation/Moodle course reference material and collaboration with colleagues.
Part 2: A live twilight session (1 hour) which reviews lesson plan implementation and introduces the TEEP Learning Journal and Portfolio.
approx. 1 week collection of learning artefacts/ Moodle course reference material and collaboration with colleagues.
Part 3: A live twilight session (1 hour) introducing the TEEP Underpinning elements and the Experts’ Challenge which impacts on curriculum design.
approx. 2 weeks constructing the Experts’ Challenge responses/ Moodle course forum for sharing resources and ideas
Part 4: A live twilight session (1 hour) reviewing the Experts’ Challenge outcomes and introducing Effective Teacher Behaviours.
approx. 2 weeks constructing and applying Fox’s Thinking Tool / Moodle course forum for sharing resources and outcomes
Part 5: A live twilight session (1 hour) reviewing Effective Teacher Behaviours and introducing Effective Learner Behaviours alongside the PEEL procedures.
approx. 2 weeks implementing and contextualising PEEL procedures/ Moodle course forum for sharing resources and outcomes
Part 6: A live twilight session (1 hour) reviewing Effective Learner Behaviours and implications for school-wide practice. Whole course review and certification
Ongoing development utilising the online course to support and guide teachers’ professional learning and improved outcomes.
The programme has been carefully designed to ensure this professional learning can be coordinated and managed with existing workload pressures, whilst at the same time extending and deepening the pedagogical understanding of each participant.
The TEEP training programme builds on many years of experience to introduce positive improvements that acknowledge and validate existing good practice whilst inspiring new approaches and strategies across three spheres of influence:
The Classroom: Identifying and unpacking current practice of the individual teacher – what is sound and what can improve?
The Team: Across a year group in primary or department in secondary – how do our schemes of learning reflect the TEEP underpinning elements and what are the implications for curriculum implementation.
The School: Nurturing and developing effective teacher behaviours which in turn impact on the development of the effective learner provides a coherent, consistent approach to teaching and learning which is sustainable.
