Teacher Learning Communities Programme

2.2

Description of the goods or services required

Perth and Kinross is seeking to engage consultants to provide Perth and Kinross Education and Children’s Services with Teacher Learning Community Training.

Scope

The Scottish Government Strategic Guidance for Community Planning Partnerships: Community Learning and Development outlines the responsibilities on the basis for delivering key priorities which include better outcomes for children and young people through Curriculum For Excellence.

In recent years Perth and Kinross Schools have continued to embed Curriculum for Excellence to both improve learning and teaching and raise attainment and achievement. Whilst this approach has been successful it has been recognised that there is an ongoing requirement to implement a strategy to sustain the good work that has been done, deepen teacher learning and continue to induct new teachers in the approach.

Following consultation with staff a decision has been made to continue to provide training and promote regular opportunities for teachers to share ideas and further develop their practice.

It is envisaged that the establishment of Teacher Learning Communities would assist in these objectives.
