Whether you want to change the professional learning culture of your school, lead teacher learning with your colleagues, or simply improve your own practice, the Teaching Sprints Foundations Day provides the knowledge and tools you need.
The challenges of teaching have never been greater, and educators have never been more overloaded. Teaching Sprints is a simple, practical and field-tested approach designed to enable busy educators to continually enhance their practice.

In this intensive one-day program you will get everything you need to understand the process, and get moving in your own role and unique context.
