Effective Lesson Observation and Promoting Excellence


Lesson observation increasingly features in schools' processes for professional development and performance management, and continues to form a core part of ISI inspection. On this practical development seminar, learn how inspectors use lesson observation, alongside other evidence, and how to maximise the effectiveness of your own lesson observation practice in order to enhance educational quality in your school and improve outcomes for pupils. You will have the opportunity to observe recorded lessons, and explore how to promote consistency of judgement and to feedback constructively.

Suitable for: Heads, Deputies, Teaching staff, this seminar relates to paragraph 3 of the ISSR and the educational quality inspection framework.
