    Outstanding monitoring, evaluation and improvement:

    Inspection skills course for headteachers and senior leaders

    There are just 6 places left on this up-to-date and well-established course which is unique to PBM. The course starts on 09 July and runs over 10th and 11 July 2014. The course has a lengthy and successful track record helping headteachers and key leaders develop effective monitoring strategies, sharpen their evaluation skills and extend substantially their capacity to improve their schools. It provides participants with a broad knowledge of the inspection process and fosters those indispensable skills for gathering pertinent data efficiently and then making unequivocal judgements. The training promotes that embedded understanding that is necessary when applying practical knowledge and skills widely in a range of school contexts. By the end of the course, participants are able to probe school data, identify strengths and weaknesses in performance, check the accuracy of assessment data and judgements about progress through rapid and rigorous work sampling, and diagnose causal factors through effective observation of teaching. Each participant receives a workbook packed with exemplar material, templates and resources that can be immediately used back in school.
