Introduction to The SSAT Enhancing Teaching Programme
The SSAT Enhancing Teaching Programme will provide your teachers with a deeper understanding of teaching and learning, developing consistently outstanding practitioners for your school. All modules are built on the SSAT Teacher Effectiveness Enhancement Programme (TEEP) and centred on the core themes of collaboration, growth mindsets and the importance of changing habits in both teachers and learners.
HOW IT WORKS
ETP consists of six modules, each focusing on a different essential element of classroom practice. Each module is two hours long and the programme is supported with pre-work and follow up activities to ensure learning is transferred into daily actions. This programme can be adapted to your context and delivered in different ways to meet your needs.
