BSLC Short Courses 2018 - 2019

BTSA offer a number of courses as part of the CPD offer for schools who are BSLC members.

The Magenta Principles (Mike Hughes) and Raising Boys' Achievements (Gary Wilson) are open to all teachers within BSLC schools. The Raising Boys' Achievement session to teachers will be followed by a session which parents of boys are able to attend.

We recommend that a member of SLT (no more than one staff member from BSLC schools) attends the Behaviour Management (Jason Bangbala) and The Learning Rainforest (Tom Sherington) sessions.

The BSLC are also offering three further courses with places limited to 2/3 teachers/TAs. We are currently determining interest from our schools and will be confirming details of the following sessions:

  1. Quality First Teaching
  2. Quality First Support
  3. Effective Deployment of TAs

Magenta Principles:

Mike Hughes

 

(100 places available to BSLC members)

The Magenta Principles is an umbrella phrase that refers to a philosophy and an approach to teaching based firmly upon the premise that learning should be both exciting and engaging. More specifically, the phrase represents a pedagogy undermined by an unshakeable belief that:

  • Learning is the consequence of thinking
  • Language is central to thinking
  • Learning is an active process
