SLT Research Interest Group
If evidence informed teaching is to become a reality we need to create time and space to engage with the research evidence. But more than that, we need to be able to discuss the research collaboratively and especially, how to translate research into practice in the classroom? The HES, in collaboration with BCU (Birmingham City University), is proposing a forum for SLT members to meet to discuss research topics – akin to a book club.
The sessions will be free to attend. First meeting of the SLT Research Interest Group will be on Thursday 2nd July 4 – 6pm Venue: HESTC, Midland Croft, B33 0AW Topic: What Makes Great Teaching by Professor Rob Coe (Available from Sutton Trust website)
If you are interested in joining the group please contact Dr Sandra Passmore, Education Adviser email@example.com
Services for Education are able to support schools and settings fulfil their requirements around Safer Recruitment. We have fully accredited trainers, who are expert in bringing the new national training to life. The training is delivered in partnership with school and governor support, and is available at two different sites across the city. We are also able to accommodate requests for in school training, and we would be happy to discuss your requirements with you.
For further information please look on the services for education web site for course dates or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Public Health England – Promoting children and young people’s emotional health and wellbeing A whole school and college approach
This document sets out key actions that headteachers and college principals can take to embed a whole school approach to promoting emotional health and wellbeing. These actions are informed by evidence and practitioner feedback about what works. They build on what many schools and colleges are doing across the country but, if applied consistently and comprehensively will help protect and promote student emotional health and wellbeing
