How to lead on teaching and learning

Above all, subject leaders are teachers and set an example by taking their own professional development seriously and by leading others on improving the quality of teaching.  They do this by focusing on four key priorities:

1.  Ensuring all the team understand the curriculum content they must teaching and how this content is best learnt

2.  Creating a supportive environment which is conducive to long-term learning

3.  Managing the classroom, including student behaviour, in order to maximise opportunities to learn

4.  Presenting curriculum content, delivering effective instruction, and providing productive learning tasks that activate their students’ working memories and make them think hard.
