|Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students|
|Evidence underpinning this approach||
Training materials are a result of author Julie McGrane's practical experience with teachers and research for the Challenge and Differentiation Toolkit at http://www.leadinglearning.eu/differentiation/
|How users/participants can evaluate success||
Each training session includes suggested ways that the leader can follow up on the session to evaluate 'what's changed?' and seek evidence of impact on teaching and learning.
|Follow-up activities and support||
Each training session includes a 'professional development tool' to use in ongoing professional learning and promote a sustained, collaborative approach. For example, the first training session recommends the use of 'professional enquiry cards' as a tool for designing and planning a classroom enquiry project. These enquiries can be carried out by pairs or small groups of teachers.
The pack contains three training sessions, designed for use with teaching staff, novice teachers and middle leaders. The structure of the sessions means that leaders can also develop their own session with a 'pick and mix' approach. Each one follows the same format:
1. Optional pre-session activity
The introductory section includes a diagnostic challenge and differentiation audit to identify training priorities in your school.
Training session 1 – Whole school/ group introduction and overview session
Training session 2 – NQTs or those who may need to revisit differentiation
Training session 3 – Middle leaders
