High Quality Teaching Tool
The High Quality Teaching Tool is comprised of supportive and informative, evidence based, ‘best bets’ to enable each academy to support their teaching staff. The Kite Academy Trust expects that leaders will invest time and effort to support staff in working on a specific competency, skill or knowledge. In this way there is the greatest potential to improve the children’s learning and outcomes.
The four ‘dimensions’ and 17 elements of the High Quality Teaching Tool enable academies in the Trust to focus on professional development for their teachers which will help them to become confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged in their own professional development. Use of these descriptors enables teachers and their peers to critically evaluate their practice and identify aspects for focus and further development.
