Transforming Teacher Education: Training for FE Teacher Trainers

Date: From Saturday 03 February 2018 to Saturday 10 March 2018
Venue: Sheffield Hallam University City Campus, Charles St Building 12.3.18, Charles St, S1 1WB

Are you a teacher educator, mentor or subject learning coach involved in the development of new teachers? Do you work in a sixth form college, further education college, offender learning setting, private training provider or other lifelong learning setting?

If so, we have an exciting opportunity for you to work with us on shaping the future of Initial Teacher Education in FE and lifelong learning! The Sheffield Institute of Education at Sheffield Hallam University is running a third cohort of continuing professional development (CPD) for FE and lifelong learning teacher educators.

The evidence-based programme will be facilitated by expert practitioners in FE ITE from Sheffield Institute of Education and a large FE college. By working in collaboration with other teacher educators on the programme, you will reflect on your practice as a teacher educator, develop your skills in key areas, and expand your professional network. This is CPD, pure and simple! There is no formal assessment, and you will receive a certificate of attendance.

Topics covered in the programme will include

  • teacher educators and how teachers learn
  • feedback and feed forward
  • developing trainee teachers' English and maths skills
  • using technology to enhance learning
  • developing your observation skill.
  • designing the ITE curriculum
  • working with mentors
  • developing teachers' critical reflective skills

The outcomes of these pilot projects will feed into the development of a set of professional standards for FE ITE.

The programme will run on the following dates at Sheffield Hallam University City Campus (approximately 5 minutes walk from Sheffield railway station)

  • Day 1 03/02/18
  • Day 2 17/02/18
  • Day 3 03/03/18
  • Day 4 10/03/18

Programme fee: £325
