‘Learning for the 21st Century’: Skippers Staff benefit from group-wide training

Posted: 11th September 2014 | Category: Bellevue Education

Teaching staff from Skippers Hill started the new academic year with shared training workshops, with other UK schools within the Bellevue Education group, on the topic of ‘Learning for the 21st Century’.

Led by Nigel Battey, who has over 30 years’ experience in education, both as a Headteacher and as a Director of Services, the sessions explored the most effective teaching strategies and tools to fully involve children in their own learning. Focus was on the need to develop pupils who are well equipped for future challenges, able to work together and adapt to change, and who are instilled with the desire to ask their own questions.

The workshops allowed staff to collaborate with colleagues within the Bellevue group and to share best practice, and ideas developed at the sessions are already being applied in the classrooms at Skippers Hill, to benefit pupils this term.

Reception Teacher, Louise Hemsley said, “The day was a fantastic chance to share ideas with colleagues from the other Bellevue schools, especially as we were sat with those who teach a similar age range. Nigel Battey was a dynamic speaker who reminded us of key elements of best practice and gave us many opportunities to consider how we might each use these to ensure that we deliver outstanding teaching in every classroom.”
