Developing Outstanding Learning- Programme

Developing Outstanding Learning

(x5 mornings & x1 full day)


Designed and facilitated by experienced school teachers and leaders, the Developing Outstanding Learning Programme gives good (and outstanding) teachers a set of high level skills and strategies that enable them to become consistently and sustainably outstanding. It helps them to:



  • demonstrate higher level understanding of teaching and improve learning for their pupils

  • coach colleagues to raise performance levels

  • create a proactive school culture where the quality of teaching and learning is observed, discussed, challenged and enhanced

  • increase the job satisfaction and create opportunities for further leadership and career progression


    The programme is a key part of the St. Peter’s Learning Centre portfolio of school-to-school support, which is helping to increase capacity and drive up standards in schools. Among many benefits, this programme helps teachers to become consistently outstanding in all their professional activities and have a significant impact on how people achieve.


    This programme:


  • Provides in-depth facilitation to deepen teachers’ understanding of outstanding classroom practice. Participants improve through facilitated practice activities that give structured opportunities to reflect on teaching approaches and their quality and impact.

  • Introduces and consolidates new knowledge and skills, and focuses on what makes teaching and learning outstanding.

  • Requires learning 3s to prepare and present at an outstanding level to the whole delegate group.

  • Forms part of the school’s professional development provision as this supports the implementation of agreed best practice and national agendas.

  • Provides strong input on the progression against the professional standards of excellence and advanced skills teachers.


    Reflection and Aspiration


    This programme will benefit teachers with the potential and capacity to consistently deliver outstanding lessons through:

  • strong commitment to teaching and learning and show that they are inspiring individuals with strong interpersonal skills and who are role models for pupils;

  • a commitment to professional development and the ability to truly reflect on their practice, including using pupil feedback to evaluate the impact of their teaching.




    A recent evaluation of this programme, reports that participants become much more reflective about their teaching and much more aware of how to make their lessons consistently outstanding. This includes placing greater emphasis on:

  • the purpose of the value of their lessons;

  • raising levels of engagement in learning;

  • the use of different teaching styles to challenge learning; greater readiness to innovate and take risks; and more reflective planning.
