Our Education Consultants and School Improvement Partners spend most of their time with teachers and leaders, helping them with strategies, tips and approaches for school improvement. They've also taken some time out to record some short "on-demand" videos, enabling you to access some great advice to support you in your role. Each video is packed with advice and ideas and will be available for you to watch online for 30 days. For just £99+VAT for each video, we'll provide access for every teacher and member of staff at your school.

Show your children how great morphology - the ability to play with the construction of words - could be the very thing they need to inspire greater creativity in writing and comprehension.
Talk, collaboration and active learning are the three foundational approaches of TT Education’s award-winning Path to Success model. Children who can move while learning are more engaged and better behaved, and more likely to retain the knowledge and skills they gain in so doing.
‘Start with the end in mind’ - a phrase said by more than one leader in education thinking. What does this mean for assessment? This webinar covers a range of assessment strategies that fit well with the new Ofsted Inspection Framework.
Supporting staff can be fraught with challenges. Choosing the right tone, approach, setting to convey your message so it has impact is tricky. Maintaining improvements after that initial conversation can be trickier. How can we improve, whilst keeping people on board?
Empower children by taking a step back, whether that’s in problem solving, restorative approaches in the playground, or metacognition in the classroom.
With the development of teaching for mastery in maths, the need for variation in approach and context has become a vital part of the learning process. Along with this comes the need for children to be supported in their understanding in a variety of ways. One of the most effective ways is through the use of the concrete-pictorial abstract approach.
What does ‘challenge’ really look like? Is it about doing more versus going deeper? Do whole-class approaches inhibit the required level of focus on the individual child? There are no real ‘right’ answers - but in this CPD On Demand, we share a host of strategies that have worked to engage and challenge pupils towards greater depth of thought, improved reasoning and higher outcomes.
Does the subject of grammar make your staff get excited? Smile? Stare thoughtfully at their notepads? We’ve encountered all of the above, and have responded with this highly-engaging webinar training session aimed at one key thing: to make grammar creative!
Does the idea of teaching punctuation get your staff excited? Smile? Stare thoughtfully at their notepads? We’ve encountered all of the above, and have responded with this highly-engaging training session aimed at one key thing: to make punctuation fun!
Uncertainty can lead to fear, which is not a great place from which to make decisions. Let us help you navigate areas of uncertainty around the new ‘Deep Dive’ language and methodology. This one-hour webinar will help you can prepare straight-forward strategic actions to help you implement improvements where you need them.
The writing process is complicated, with lots of competing requirements, and this often makes it overwhelming for children. However, poetry can provide an engaging and empowering ‘way in’ to this process.
English GDS criteria require that children be able to draw on their reading to inform their writing. In this online session you will find out about TT Education’s popular ‘chunking’ approach which teaches children to use high-quality literary and grammar analysis. They learn to unpick the ‘author’s craft’, find and identify the ‘effect’, and ultimately give their own writing a proper purpose.
This online session looks at the place of ‘protected characteristics’ in the new Relationships Education guidance, investigates ‘accidental discrimination’, provides you with the ‘politically correct’ vocabulary, and gives advice on how to improve your pastoral care – so that everyone’s school experience is positive.
This webinar looks at ways to structure interventions to ensure they are effective; and it suggests ways to mediate any negative impact on the rest of the class.
Science is more than ‘fair testing’, and scientific enquiry is far more than just experiments.
The term ‘mastery’ has become synonymous with maths over the last few years as we have developed an understanding of how other countries successfully teach their maths curriculums. We have learnt a great many lessons about approaches to teaching and learning in maths.
Research has linked outdoor learning to increased motivation and creativity; it also gives children an opportunity for practical application and cognitive challenge. In a maths context this may be familiar in younger years, but perhaps less so as the children get older. How can we make the most of the outdoor environment throughout KS1-2?
Just when you think you’ve finally gotten your head around lesson planning and the new curriculum someone decides that there is a better way to do things. Changing your approach to maths lessons and everything that entails can, at times, seem overwhelming especially when you are trying to include all the different mastery elements that make maths lessons effective. So how do you do it?
How long do you spend preparing leavers for Year 7? This training session takes a creative approach to the subject, using the idea of character traits - from the newly statutory relationships education part of PSHE - to think longer term in preparing pupils.
Children seem to be starting school with decreasing levels of oracy; and our focus on the written form for evidence can sometimes divert our attention from speaking and listening. This online training shares several of our favourite approaches for oracy development in the Early Years, but the strategies need little adaptation to apply in the key stages too.
When we refer to problem solving in maths it is fair to say that most of us will immediately associate that with a series of worded problems. Whilst worded problems are a valid form of problem solving, they are just one way of approaching this aspect of maths teaching and learning and as educators, we should be exposing our pupils to a much wider variety of contexts in order to develop well-rounded pupils who can tackle maths challenges in a variety of contexts.
PSHE becomes part-statutory in September 2020. How prepared is your school? How can you meet a new set of legal requirements without diverting energy and focus from the other things that matter?
From Every Child Matters, to SEND-in-the-mainstream, to the current inspection framework; children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities have always been a high priority for schools.
During this one-hour session, we will share the most successful SEND strategies we have implemented in mainstream schools.
Spirituality is as much an awareness of ourselves as it is an awareness of anything beyond ourselves. So how do we, in a secular age, encourage pupils to engage with and understand their ‘spirit’ - whether or not they have a faith-based ‘spiritual’ side? What inspires you? Where do you feel most at peace?
How can we ensure our pupils are retaining - and applying - what they have ‘learned’ in any given subject, topic, or year?
Teaching in a special school – or provision in mainstream – adds extra complexity to the job of teaching. This CPD webinar will help you understand the skills required to successfully work with multiple external agencies, for the benefits of your pupils.
How can we truly create a curriculum that facilitates deeper, more connected learning and retention of information - as well as supporting pupils in connecting learning to other domains?
Children with complex needs start school with vary varied levels of oracy, numeracy and communication; and our focus on the written form for evidence can sometimes divert our attention from how we achieve engagement and progress. This online training shares our Path to Success – and how it can have a positive impact on learning at your special school.
Students at secondary school still need to continually improve oracy, fluency, numeracy and communication; and our focus on the written form for evidence can sometimes divert our attention from how we achieve engagement and progress. This online training shares our Path to Success – and how it can have a positive impact on learning at your school.
Secondary schools across the country are readying themselves for inspection under the new Ofsted framework – but what does it actually look like in practice? Our experiences with a wide range of schools leave us well-placed to support subject leaders in preparing for a lead role in their next inspection; with all that entails.
Many primaries find themselves hard-pressed to reach the expected standards for spoken foreign languages, but the National Curriculum has a completely different focus for ancient languages. Where Latin is taught, the priority is for comprehension of the written word, discussed in English, as well as classical history and cultural capital.
Science lessons are a chance for pupils to explore the world around them, investigate, enquire and ask questions. Within science lessons we support children to develop these questions, plan lines of enquiry, investigate different scientific phenomena and develop their ‘cultural capital’.
Ofsted’s new approach is looking for unprecedented levels of foundation subject vocabulary, and this is being part-tested through the Y6 reading SATs. How well-equipped are you to meet this challenge? This online session will show you how to increase children’s vocabulary in a way that ensures application, retention, and conceptual nuance.
Wake your body, wake your mind! A healthy body and a healthy approach to life can support adults AND children alike in improving wellbeing, personal awareness and health.
Working in a special school, or provision within mainstream, often brings greater – and certainly more diverse – day to day experiences than you might expect. Extreme behaviours, personal care & support, a wider range of adults and children to interact with, as well as emotional highs and lows of dealing with pupils who have complex needs.
The new Ofsted framework’s emphasis on foundation subjects poses an exciting (if difficult) challenge for teachers. We know from decades of guidance what a good maths or English lesson looks like, but what about history, geography, art, music?
Are we making the best use of all that we have available to us? This very broad question often relates to paper, pens etc. but what about your human resource - just how well are the adults used to support learning?
