Secondary lesson observation

The following videos include detailed professional feedback, teacher lesson plans, and question prompts* to enable schools to deliver low cost, high impact training sessions.

The videos work really well when we deliver our Observation Standardisation Training Events. They are a great tool for highlighting strengths and areas for development in teaching practice and lift the theory into a realistic environment.
