Teachers, leaders and mentors will be able to gain formal recognition for improving their practice through instructional coaching as part of a new partnership between the professional body for teachers and a professional learning platform for schools.
The new CPD partnership between the Chartered College of Teaching and Steplab will offer a new route to gain the Development of Teaching Practice Award, comprising 20 credits towards Chartered Status. Those using Steplab’s platform, focused on an evidence-based approach to improving pupil outcomes, will be directed to how they can gain accreditation, and work towards the prestigious Chartered Status awarded by the Chartered College.
Steplab and the Chartered College will be collaborating on a range of events, podcasts and jointly-authored content highlighting the role of well-implemented instructional coaching as a lever to enhancing teacher expertise.
Jonny Goggs, Head of Partnerships at the Chartered College of Teaching, said:
“We are delighted to be partnering with Steplab, who provide a range of evidence-informed, widely used and highly effective tools to aid the implementation of instructional coaching in schools. This partnership offers those engaging with the Steplab platform a new route to gaining recognition for developing their teaching practice, offered by the Chartered College of Teaching. We look forward to a fruitful partnership with Steplab, founded on a shared commitment to enhancing teacher expertise.”
Claire Hill, Strategic Director of Steplab, said:
“We are excited to be recognised as a Chartered Status CPD Partner, meaning Steplab can now be used by teachers and leaders to gain recognition for developing their practice. We are thrilled that this collaboration will allow us to work with the Chartered College of Teaching to support even more teachers to improve their practice and make a real difference to the learning of their students.”
