Cambridge International is committed to supporting the continuing improvement of the quality of educational outcomes for all learners following Cambridge programmes in schools around the world. We recognise that classroom teaching has the largest impact on the quality of educational outcomes. What teachers know and do makes the difference in improving student learning outcomes – their knowledge, pedagogical practices and relationships with students. We also recognise that teachers cannot achieve and sustain high-quality outcomes for all students without effective leadership. In support of this, we have developed the Cambridge Teacher and School Leader Standards to define key characteristics and practices of effective teachers and leaders, and our ‘RAG Grid’ as an evaluation tool to help you assess your teaching or school leadership by asking yourself key questions and looking for examples from your own practice.
In this interactive session we will explore the Standards and, focusing on one as an example, work with it to design ways in which they can be used to confirm successful teaching and leaderships practices and help determine areas and priorities for professional development.
