Your Work With Us
 

Your projects and case studies are important to us and to your learning community.

We work with you to develop the skills and competences that you will apply in the workplace. This can take the form of projects that you carry out at work or case studies of learning or curriculum.

The Professional Development Programme envisions the creation of a community of professional practitioners working in education and education-related areas. Professional learning, focused on workplace activity, is at the heart of this vision.

Student conferences are organised by and for students with support from course and route leaders.

The aim of the student conference is to develop the idea of a professional learning community, and offers students the opportunity to learn from each other’s work and explore new ways in disseminating work-based learning.

The keynote address by Huw Thomas, Headteacher, author of a number of books on teaching and management, and regular contributor to the TES and Junior Education, will encourage and inspire professional development. While contributions by individuals on Masters courses will give a feel for the variety of work-based learning that is taking place though Hallam.

Launch the PDP micro-site which contains all the work contributed to the conference (opens new window).

Over 350 teachers have engaged with us in the last 3 years in developing their portfolios for both academic credit and membership of the Teacher Learning Academy.

Your projects and case studies are important to us and to your learning community.
