Course overview:

We know that children thrive when they feel part of a team - but this is sometimes disrupted by traditional approaches like streaming and out-of-class interventions. How can a teacher provide a personalised learning structure for everyone in the class at the same time? This three-part series breaks down the idea of ‘Quality First Teaching’ and gives dozens of practical ideas that have been tried and tested in the classroom.

Part 1 looks at how to set up the learning:

  • What is ‘mastery’ teaching and how do children learn?
  • Creating routines and safe learning environments
  • Behaviour, attitudes, and raising expectations
  • curriculum design

Part 2 considers ways to ‘move on’ the learning:

  • Widening children’s experiences
  • Creating challenge for a whole class at once
  • Improving your subject knowledge
  • Assessment for learning
  • Collaborating with colleagues

Part 3 explores how children can ‘own’ the learning and become more independent:

  • Sequencing learning to increase retention of knowledge and skills
  • Microteaching and ‘scaffolding’ - while maintaining independence
  • Metacognition (‘learning to learn’ approaches)
  • Oracy, gamification and engagement


  • Class teachers (NQTs/RQTs but experienced practitioners too)
  • Mentors for NQTs and RQTs
  • Head teachers and SLT
