Designed by OLEVI and facilitated by experienced school leaders and teachers, the Outstanding Teacher Programme (OTP) gives good and outstanding teachers a set of high level skills and strategies that enable them to become consistently and sustainably outstanding. Utilised in the London and City Challenge Projects and endorsed by the National College, the OTP has gained a national reputation for raising standards in teaching and learning. 

Objectives

To provide teachers with:

  • the ability to demonstrate higher level understanding of teaching and improve learning for their pupils
  • the ability to coach colleagues and pupils in their own school and in other schools to raise performance levels
  • the ability to create a proactive school culture where the quality of teaching and learning is openly observed, discussed, challenged and enhanced
  • increased professional satisfaction and create opportunities for further leadership and career progression

 

The Outstanding Teacher Programme

  • provides in-depth coaching to deepen teachers’ understanding of outstanding classroom practice. Participants improve through facilitated practice activities as structured opportunities to reflect on teaching approaches and their quality and impact
  • introduces and consolidates new knowledge and skills, and focus on what makes teaching and learning outstanding
  • requires learning 3s to prepare and present at an outstanding level to the whole delegate group for evaluation against DR ICE®
  • forms part the school’s professional development provision as this supports the implementation of agreed best practice and national agendas
  • provides strong input on the progression against the professional standards of excellence. This programme is crucial for teachers involved in developing Leadership in Teaching and Learning

 

Impact

A recent external evaluation of this programme, led by professor Peter Matthews, reports that participants become much more reflective about their teaching and much more aware of how to make their lessons consistently outstanding. This includes placing greater emphasis on:

  • the purpose of the value of their lessons
  • raising levels of engagement in learning
  • the use of different teaching styles to challenge learning
  • greater readiness to innovate and take risks
  • more reflective planning.

    Most participants find the coaching element a highlight, enabling them to understanding the importance of the relationship between ‘outstanding teaching’ and ‘professional coaching’. The impact of the programme is reinforced through independent assessments by schools using qualified inspectors, review teams or AST assessors.
