Driving Delivery of Highly Effective T + L to a Transient Senior School Pupil Body
Webinar Description:Enabling the most effective teaching and learning for all pupils must be the prime aim of any school leader. The particular dynamics of international schools add a different dimension to achieving this aim as the pupil body changes quite often and pupils do not tend to stay at one school for long periods of time. The webinar looks at the systems needed to support the rapid and effective integration of new pupils into an international senior school, how schools can maximise high quality teaching and learning as well as judge progress and how the culture/branding of the school is vital to both a sense of belonging and the active recruitment of new pupils.
During the webinar you will:
- Understand the impact of a transient pupil body appreciate the need for systems to support effective teaching and learning in such circumstances
- Understand the importance of school culture/branding for the current community and for future pupil recruitment
- New to, or interested in, leadership in international schooling
- School Managers and Governors
