Effective Feedback

'Effective Feedback' is one of our Deep Dive Days - training designed to arm teachers with classroom ready strategies from the latest findings in the fields of cognitive and behavioural development, neuro-science and psychology. Whether you are a Thinking School or not, our Deep Dive Days are ideal CPD training for any teacher.

Workshop Description: Feedback is something that is used by every teacher. It has been shown to be one of the most influential factors on pupil outcomes (ranking number one for impact on The EEF's Teaching and Learning Toolkit), but done badly it can have negative effects. 

This workshop seeks to define the features of effective feedback and offers practical strategies on how to apply good feedback in our classrooms with a particular focus on providing feedback which seeks to support student metacognition. The creation of a metacognitive feedback culture across the school can potentially reduce workload and contribute to improved outcomes for learners.

Target Audience: Primary or secondary teachers, teaching assistants, headteachers, leaders, pastoral teams, SENCOs and/or whole school staff. 

How: Available as a half day INSET or series of twilights at school.
