New opportunity: visit a Challenge Award-accredited school
01 November 2019
New for 2019, NACE is offering opportunities to visit NACE Challenge Award-accredited schools to gain unique insights and inspiring examples of effective more able policy and practice.
These small-group visits offer the chance to go behind the scenes and gain insights into high-quality teaching, learning and leadership, focusing on how the school has used the NACE Challenge Framework to support the development of high-quality provision for more able learners within a whole-school ethos of challenge for all.
Each immersive school visit will include:
· Introductory talk – overview of school context and NACE Challenge journey; cornerstones of more able policy and practice; transformative initiatives and their impact; approach to CPD, ongoing school improvement and maintaining consistently high-quality teaching and learning.
· Learning walk – up to two hours guided tour in a small group, with a focus on effective practice in provision for more able learners and high-quality challenge in and beyond the classroom.
· Q&A – opportunity to ask questions about the school and aspects covered earlier in the day, as well as questions about the NACE Challenge Framework and/or Challenge Award accreditation and reaccreditation.
Questions can be submitted in advance and will be used to tailor the focus of the day. Alongside key staff members from the host school, a NACE Associate will be available to provide additional guidance.
Cost: £120 +VAT
Who should attend?
This opportunity is aimed at school leaders, more able coordinators and others leading on provision for more able learners and high attainment in a school or group of schools. It is open to leaders and practitioners from all phases, sectors and stages of development in provision for more able learners – including schools with no previous experience of the NACE Challenge Framework, as well as those already using the Framework and/or holding the NACE Challenge Award.
