NBI Associates – THE Diversity and Cultural Change Specialists are currently taking bookings for a new, innovative and interactive Teacher’s CPD and Trainee Teacher Program, Embedding Equality, in which participants share good practice through a range of reflective and explorative activities.
There is a substantial discount for those who make bookings before Monday 2 September 2013 and further reductions in cost for repeat clients.
This program explores strategies for effectively embedding Equality and Diversity, though the creation and customisation of imaginative Teaching Resources, within the context of the Teachers’ Standards 2013.
The importance of Respecting Diversity and Promoting Equality within education, to meet the needs of the whole learner, is energetically explored through a variety of methods, which are securely anchored to current educational policy and philosophy.
Participants are guided towards delivering outstanding teaching and to optimising learning for ALL learners.
In this 2 hour seminar and workshop, activities pose and answer the following questions:
· Are your teaching resources accessible for all learners?
• Do learners require additional resources to help them to access information? (Initial assessment, support staff)
• Are people from diverse backgrounds, socioeconomic, cultural, people with disabilities visible in course materials?
• Do you build on learner diversity as an educational resource?
And, in line with the Teachers’ Standards 2013:
1 Do your resources show that you are setting high expectations which inspire, motivate and challenge ALL learners?
2 Do they promote good progress and outcomes by ALL learners?
3 Do your resources demonstrate good subject and curriculum knowledge, which illustrate a broad knowledge of diverse specialists in your subject?
4 Do you plan and teach well-structured lessons which include resources which meet the needs of the whole person?
5 Do you adapt teaching and resources to respond to the strengths and needs of all learners?
6 Do you make accurate and productive use of assessment which caters for the needs of all learners?
7 Does your creation or customisation of resources aid the management of behaviour effectively and ensure a good and safe learning environment?
8 Does your creation and customisation of resources aid to the fulfilment of your wider professional responsibilities.
