NATIONAL PROFESSIONAL QUALIFICATIONS
SACRED HEART CASE STUDIES
Lauren Gilhespy – Head of Psychology and Teaching & Learning Co-Ordinator. Currently completing NPQLTD.
“Completing my NPQ in Leading Teacher Development has made me find time to thoroughly reflect on what makes Continued Professional Development effective for staff. This has been fantastically timed as I am a SCITT Mentor this year, as well as delivering whole school CPD. Being able to discuss with other people who are equally invested in learning, about how to lead teacher development, in either face-to-face or online sessions, has been invaluable. It is brilliant to be able to discuss ideas with colleagues from different schools and to have conversations about the different approaches schools take, often to the same area.
The See It, Name It, Do It model that the NPQ uses means that you are always able to see the techniques that you focus on, in action which has been incredibly useful. I have also enjoyed how evidence based this qualification is and the emphasis that is placed on ensuring that any teacher development that is delivered is also founded in research. This training has already impacted on how I have delivered training to SCITT students and members of my department and the content and techniques that I have learned will inevitably impact on my delivery of teacher development throughout my career.”
Katherine Robertson – Second in Modern Foreign Languages. Currently completing NPQLT.
“I'm currently taking part in the NPQ for Leading Teaching. All of the course material has been thoroughly researched and has practical applications in the classroom. The structure of 'see it, name it, do it' makes it easy to identify areas of teaching excellence and apply them to my day-to-day classroom practice.
I've enjoyed the flexible delivery of the course with some sessions being delivered in person, others via webinar. The self-study units also make it easy to fit the course in around teaching commitments.”
