Principles that develop outstanding secondary teachers
Ofsted good practice example showing how the University of Birmingham uses high quality development feedback.
The University of Birmingham was judged to be outstanding in its secondary phase partnership in 2012-13. The foundation of this very high quality provision is a common, single-minded principle that underpins all of the training provision, and characterises the qualities of trainees, namely providing high quality development feedback. It is rare to find such careful, expertly-led teacher training that so effectively models this common pedagogical idea. The theory is backed by excellent practical course arrangements, with seamless integration of centre-based and school based training.
