Key elements of our teaching strategy include:
- Highly personalised training programmes based on the very best research to ensure teaching practice is evidence-informed, reflective and effective.
- Offering a curriculum that is broad, balanced and fully inclusive, with a wide range of appropriate and challenging courses to suit the needs of our students.
- Ensuring students are knowledge-rich by continually revisiting ideas so that learning is long-term; Fostering confident, independent learners by providing regular opportunities for students to deliberately practise in lessons.
- Providing effective assessment feedback where students have the opportunity to respond to and engage with the feedback to improve their work.
