Tired of spoon feeding and hand holding your sixth form students?
The reason why some students end up being supported as much as they do is down to teachers feeling pressurised by exam results, which causes them to offer too much support, stifling independent learning.
A culture of dependency is widespread today because some staff feel unsupported and unsure about what exactly they need to do about it, whilst others just don't see the rationale for the change.
It's often all too easy to pick up the spoon and rush to the aid of students.
This is why high-quality professional development can be a powerful influence, if staff have received quality training they will be empowered to alter and change their practice for the better.
The Ali Abbas Group
Well it certainly helps if the INSET is run by someone with years' worth of real educational experience - Ali has been rated as outstanding in each of the four colleges that he has worked in.
To train teachers to be outstanding, you need to deliver an outstanding INSET course to teachers.
Ali and his team are able to accommodate your school / colleges timings and make it either a half or whole day's training. Many have used Ali for twilight sessions held directly after school, which allows staff to be updated on a specific topic but without the need for a lot of cover.
Others have used Ali for particular groups of staff such as NQTs, middle managers or Heads of departments. Ali has provided follow-up visits, learning walks and lesson observations to help measure the impact of the training.
The group specialises in improving sixth form quality and standards to enable staff to promote independent learning and remove spoon feeding.
