Cooperative Learning; Optimising Initial Teacher Training

Leeds School Centred ITT is one of the longest running SCITTs in the region. With consistently ‘good’ or ‘good with outstanding’ Ofsted reports, delivering only top-quality, tried and tested strategies is a given.
Cooperative Learning is ideal for PGCEs, because each of these easily-managed, content-void packages effortlessly combine so many key elements of outstanding teaching, including effective classroom management, peer learning, metacognition, feedback, automatic differentiation, simultaneous and equal participation, high individual accountability, excellent monitoring opportunities, and written assessment,
to name a few.
One afternoon’s training lets even new, timid trainees secure student buy-in through engaging, effective teaching, in any subject, using any materials – with virtually no additional preparation. And in many cases, Cooperative Learning will slot in with, or even strengthen, other strategies taught at the SCITT, especially classroom management, monitoring, and social skills development.
The Leeds SCITT Cooperative Learning programme commences on October 31, 2016. Please contact myself or the Director, Ms Oldfield, for more information. Follow Leeds SCITT on‎ @LeedsSCITT.
