Heads Up

This strategy is about letting everyone be excellent at what they do.

Typically, what happens when a school is in ‘RI’ is they do what I call ‘wholesale’ training; training which everyone needs and everyone attends. This is the right thing to do at this stage.

But what happens when you get to ‘good’?

Usually, the same continues. However, the team are in a different place. Their needs tend to no longer be about everyone improving to a standard, their needs are often different.

Perhaps one teacher needs to develop their feedback skills.

Another might need to expand their knowledge of supporting special needs in their class.

Another might need to improve their questioning skills.

At this stage, be careful about getting stuck doing what makes you ‘good’, and look to make training more individualised in order to let your team flourish even further.
