Continuing Professional Development

Enabling our teaching and non-teaching staff to access the very best Continued Professional Development (CPD) opportunities is integral to the Ouseburn Learning Trust. 

In addition to a regular and high quality programme of staff development (Our Teach Meet activity being one such example), there are a number of groups who meet to reflect and share good practice, e.g. Deputy Headteachers, SENDCOs, School Business Managers.

Ouseburn Learning Trust Teach Meet

 Teach Meet’s are informal events where teachers participate in workshops and showcase elements of best classroom practice.  The focus of any good Teach Meet is to share ideas and the most effective classroom methodology.

The second annual OLT Teach Meet was hosted by the Great North Museum Hancock. Teachers gathered from across the Trust to present and share best practice. A wide range of presentations covered everything from Sheds to Shakespeare! It was especially exciting to see the focus on partnership working in presentations by West Jesmond staff and the Great North Museum’s Adam Goldwater.

The Ouseburn Learning Trust’s first Professional Development event of 2015/16 at Heaton Manor School was a huge success. Teachers from across the Seven Primaries and Heaton Manor Secondary school gathered to participate in a Teach Meet focussed on Maths. It was incredibly exciting to have teachers reflecting on teaching and learning practice from both the Primary and Secondary phases of our Learning Trust.
