From September 2018, Barnwell School has reinstated the TLDW (Teacher Led Development Work) Programme to support teacher leadership in school. Through this development work, we support teachers and other educational practitioners to plan and lead projects designed to develop the quality and effectiveness of teaching and learning across the school. The TLDW programme supports teacher leadership through:
a) belonging to a school-based group
b) participation in a series of workshops
c) using tools for reflection and planning
d) certification through a portfolio of evidence d) internal support from senior leadership e) participation in the network
In the context of Barnwell, the TLDW sessions are led by members of senior leadership team, who are accredited members of the HertsCam Tutor Team. This is an example of the ‘in-house’ training that Barnwell School offers all staff who wish to develop their practise further and change the lives of children through their development work.
Successful participation in the TLDW programme leads to the award of the Certificate in Teacher Leadership. If you have any questions regarding the Barnwell TLDW programme, then please contact Cary Francis, Assistant Headteacher, Teaching, Learning & Assessment.
