“Being part of the teaching and learning group has allowed me to have a real impact on whole school changes. The group have a genuine say in teaching and learning at Victory. It has also allowed me to take part in really lively and engaging debate about pedagogy.” Carol Long
“There is a genuine lively debate of ideas. The teaching and learning group are encouraged to express their ideas, and those ideas often will lead to real changes.” Joe Kendrick-Erickson
Those who take the teaching and learning route can lead on action research. If there is an area that you wish to investigate you will need to find other staff willing to work with you. You will then work in consultation with the AP for Teaching and Learning. There is also the opportunity to contribute to the Victory Journal. This is a collection of papers on key teaching and learning strategies and ideas designed to inform and share good practice.
