Developing supportive and inclusive practice.

Explore the issue of diversity in classrooms. On this course, you will learn different techniques and strategies you can use to address the many differences among learners – ultimately help each of your students to fully engage, learn and achieve their ambitions. The sessions are practical in orientation and focus on equipping and enabling teachers to plan, teach and assess learning in diverse and inclusive classrooms. The content and methodology is underpinned by relevant, evidence-informed educational approaches.

At Bell Teacher Academy, you will be joining a global community of teachers. This fully-inclusive programme includes a series of workshops and talks related to current thinking and trends in the sector, and a full programme of social events for you to explore life and culture in the UK – outside of the classroom.

I have learnt the latest teaching skills and activities that I will take back to my classroom, and gained a lot of useful resources. For me the most important thing is sharing what I have learnt with my colleagues, so they can develop their skills too.
