Lesson planning: Reduce the burden on teachers and improve the quality results and learner experience

Ofsted seek evidence of planning but do not expect or demand to see detailed lesson-planning forms.

The DfE workload group agrees. Leaders, however, still want to see outstanding lessons and some fail to appreciate that the solution lies not with increased paperwork but with professional autonomy and teacher choice using a menu of techniques developed by teams collaborating to identify the best strategies for raising achievement. Teamwork is at the core of successful departments and sharing and extending best practice leads to raised attainment, increased recruitment and an invigorated staffroom. This course with Robert Powell shows how this can be done.
