Inspirit - St Thomas More Teaching School

St Thomas More Teaching School


Research states that the key to success with all learners is quality first teaching (QFT). SAF TSA (formerly Pilgrim), Inspirit TS and Bedford Borough have come together to plan a programme around this.


Objectives of the Course 

The programme is for returning teachers and those wishing to improve their practice. It will run over 6 facilitated sessions (1pm until 4pm) and be led by both primary and secondary specialists.  Sessions will cover:

  • Behaviour for learning
  • Challenge and engagement
  • Questioning
  • Marking & feedback
  • Planning for progress
  • Celebration and preservation

In addition to these sessions and for maximum impact, schools will be asked to provide mentors to support post-sessional tasks
