This is a 6 year training and development programme to support and challenge colleagues from ECT to M6. It is based on John Hattie's research - 'Distinguishing between experience and expertise.' It is an established training programme at Macmillan Academy and has seen excellent outcomes in retaining staff in years 1 to 6 of their teaching careers.
The ethos of the programme is to build professional capital and to ensure that when teachers have completed the 6 years of training they will be able
to deliver day to day high quality lessons, have a track record of examination results, give effective and regular feedback which promotes student progress,
have a positive rapport with students, parents and staff, have a constant drive to improve their practice, take on additional responsibilities, have the
ability to mentor and coach others and can collaborate successfully with colleagues.
The programme includes an extensive ECT induction programme centred around the Teaching Standards 'Early Career Framework' and our academy teaching model 'OPTIC'. The ECT 2 training programme builds on the ECT year and years 3 to 6 of the expert teacher programme work to refine teaching and learning, to consolidate training and to ensure the building and nurturing of professional capital. The last 4 years of this bespoke training programme are based on comprehensive academic research which is the cornerstone of our OPTIC teaching and learning model.
Macmillan Training School would like to share the 6 year ETP with you and believe that this programme could provide excellent outcomes at both primary and secondary level. We believe that this training programme would be most successful when delivered as an ‘in-house’ on-going programme with sessions for each stage spread over a year. To this end we would offer the full programme, resources and a train-the-trainer event to schools who were interested.
