Chartered College of Teaching
Orchard School Bristol is delighted to be part of the National Chartered College of Teaching's (NCCT) network programme.
The programme is designed to help the NCCT build up a professional knowledge base of teaching and provide centres to bring together members to work on issues of direct concern to classroom practice.
OSB is the first secondary school in Bristol to be involved in the programme.
Dame Alison Peacock, Chief Executive, Chartered College of Teaching, said: "A key element of the Chartered College’s mission is to support teachers in engaging with research evidence. Our network programme has been carefully designed to offer flexible, high quality opportunities to ensure that as many teachers as possible can enjoy access to professional collaboration and development.’
The Chartered College network programme includes a broad range of stimulating face-to-face events and online forums.
Kate Richards, assistant headteacher for Teaching and Learning, said: "Becoming a Chartered College network is a fantastic opportunity for OSB to become a front runner in providing professional development for staff based on evidence based practice. The network will ensure that we can connect knowledge from across the area to provide the best possible outcomes for our students."
