Get in touch
There is a great deal written about the difference between good and outstanding teaching and many school leaders will be familiar with the literature. Securing it in practice, however, is much more elusive. Good2Great is rooted in the evidence-based belief that the only way to truly transform teaching practice is through critical reflection and it will help you drive the level of impact and the speed of transformation in your school.
Good 2 Great builds uses effective professional development research and begins the learning journey. Two half-day sessions sit either side of an in-school task providing a really effective professional development experience. You can join us as a group of schools or as a whole school.
