Chartered College of Teaching
The Howard School was delighted to welcome Professor Dame Alison Peacock, CEO of the Chartered College of Teaching, to an evening event that saw over 100 teachers from across the region attending. Dame Alison is acknowledged by Debrett's as one of the '500 most influential people in Britain', has been a highly successful headteacher, and is also an author.
Dame Alison spoke on the benefits of engaging with research to inform pedagogical practice and how this can dramatically improve outcomes for your pupils, and also showcased what this looks like in reality across schools and classrooms.
Part of the vision for the Chartered College of Teaching is to create regional hubs and we were delighted when Dame Alison announced that Medway would be the very first regional hub, based at The Howard School. Mr Millar, Head at The Howard School, commented: "This is fantastic news for the students and teachers in Medway, that we will be at the very forefront of educational research in this country and beyond, and very much look forward to working with the College as it develops and grows."
The next Chartered College of Teaching event in Medway is likely to be in June 2017 at The Howard School: further details to follow.
