Learning outcomes

Our professional development programme will support you in improving children’s communication and language by using research-validated tools:

· to gain a deeper understanding of how children learn language and how to support that learning through evidence-based practice;

· to tune in to children and to yourselves, acting on that evidence to improve the effectiveness of practice

· to work as a team within your class/rooms to develop the approach

· to develop an effective self-evaluation and improvement cycle and improve your confidence to articulate shared pedagogy to others (including Ofsted)
to build capacity for sustained improvement beyond the end of the programme.
