Ian Brook – SLE Pen Portrait

SLE Specialism: English, ITT.

As a former AST in English I have worked within both my own school and across others to raise standards of attainment and achievement in the subject, with a specific focus on improving the quality of Teaching & Learning. I have carried out extensive cross departmental projects within my own school setting, many which focused on improving the quality of staff CPD/JPD by implementing collaborative structures (such as lesson study) and encouraging active research.

Currently, I am heavily involved in the design and delivery of English Twilight sessions as part of the BTSA Primary Initial Teacher Training Programme, also leading on the Secondary School Direct.
