Leading Learning is a professional development programme, specifically designed for NQTs, and consists of six full-day sessions. Each session focuses on discreet aspects of outstanding classroom practice, effective teaching and learning and necessary professional skills and behaviours.

Leading Learning looks to support newly qualified teachers in developing effective classroom practice where the emphasis is on how individuals can offer outstanding learning experiences for every young learner. Each individual day seeks to explore a key dimension within teaching and learning and looks to develop delegates` classroom practice across all phases.

Leading Learning seeks to deepen delegates understanding around the principles of highly effective teaching and learning whilst offering a range of practical ideas and strategies for use in any classroom. Throughout each day, delegates will be introduced to a range of learning tools and supported in considering how these might be developed within their own professional practice.
