High quality continuing professional development is the key to generating world-class schools. Our ‘Being Brilliant’ programme is a series of videos that will enable school staff to reflect on their thinking and behaviours, to try new approaches and in doing so, re-invigorate their positivity, energy and classroom practice.
But this series is actually much bigger than that. These videos are about rekindling your enthusiasm and zest so while we want that to be reflected in the classroom, the effect will ripple out across your life. Most of the messages are equally applicable at home as they are in the workplace.
Thus, these videos are designed to give all staff access to high quality CPD. There are 5 videos in this series, all aimed at the school’s adult community. Part 3 is the only teaching-specific video, so the majority of the learning is for the whole school community.
The videos themselves contain a total of 85 minutes of learning. However, the activities mean that the learning can be extended to fit training days and/or a series of twilight sessions. Each video comes with a set of facilitator notes complete with follow-up tasks and extension activities.
Our ethos is that wellbeing is too important to be left to chance. It’s the key to flourishing staff, learners and wider community. Feeling good is a basic human right and it’s everyone’s responsibility to know how.
Thus, the teachers’ series can be combined with our primary, secondary and parenting videos to generate a common language and a set of principles that embeds positivity into the school culture. The ripple effect will extend far beyond the school gates.
