Evidence underpinning this approach This course provides subject-knowledge enhancement from experts in the field, as well as teacher-facilitated discussion on best practice when teaching the topic. The Sutton Trust identified the strongest evidence for what makes a great teacher as being:

1) Teachers' subject content knowledge, including their ability to understand how students think about a subject and identify common misconceptions
2) Quality of instruction
How users/participants can evaluate success Participants will fill in evaluation forms on the day regarding the achievement of the aims of this course.
Follow-up activities and support We will send you postcards that you have written on the day as a follow up from the event. The postcards contain points on what you found inspiring and what you will do differently in lessons as a result of the CPD Day.
