The Teacher Led Development Work (TLDW) programme
This is a programme that supports teacher leadership in primary, secondary and special schools. It does this by enabling teachers and other educational practitioners to plan and lead projects designed to develop the quality and effectiveness of aspects of teaching and learning in their own schools.
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
Successful participation in the TLDW programme leads to the award of the Certificate in Teacher Leadership.
In 2015 -16 we are offering 3 versions of the TLDW programme. One which is the main programme, one which is a specific Early Years focused programme and one which is designed for a cluster of primary schools.
