The Initial Teacher Training Enhancement Programme (TTEP) is a flexible online training solution that will enhance and support your ITT programme. TTEP can be integrated into your current training programme, allowing you to develop a blended-learning course and maximise your time with your trainees.
TTEP is split into three distinct sections: Professional Studies, Subject Studies and Teaching Examples.
Professional Studies resources are designed and delivered by our experienced ITT team, and focus on the key professional skills and pedagogy trainees need to be successful during their ITT year. You can use these resources to deliver a blended-learning course which the trainees can access at any point during their ITT and NQT years.
Subject Studies resources are specifically aimed at supporting trainees in the shortage subjects of Mathematics, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, English, MFL, Computer Science and Geography. These resources build on the topic and ideas from Professional Studies sessions and allow trainees to consider the Subject Pedagogical Knowledge specific to their specialism. These resources allow you to deliver a subject focused strand to your ITT programme in each subject for any size of cohort.
Teaching Examples help bridge the gap between the theory and practice. They consist of classrom examples delivered by practicing teachers, with a focus on the teaching of key and difficult concepts. VCOS resources come from our unique VIDLEARN Classroom Observation System (VCOS), where lessons are captured live in the classroom and edited to highlight examples of best practice. Using our unique learning platform, these resources can be searched for both subject-specific content and Qualified Teachers' Standards using our matched descriptors.
Change the way you deliver ITT with TTEP.
Professional Studies 1
This focuses on the core generic teaching skills and pedagogy needed for an ITT trainee on any secondary route. These are accessible to trainees with little or no experience in the classrom and can be revisited as the trainee's understanding of the role develops.
Professional Studies 2
Here the focus is on the more advanced teaching skills and ideas. Trainees would engage with this content after a sustained period of classroom experience. These recordings link coherently with the Teachers' Standards.
These are designed to offer subject specific input for trainees across the shortage subjects. Here, ideas and pedagogies specific to each subject are covered to help trainees with the subject specific demands of teaching their specialism. These recordings allow trainees to consider the Subject Pedagogical Knowledge specific to their specialism.
These resources provide examples of best practice directly from the classroom. Using our VIDLEARN Classroom Observation System (VCOS), we capture lessons live in the classroom and then edit these to provide viewers with a unique insight into teaching. These resources are aligned with the Teachers' Standards so that trainees can match ideas about teaching and learning with actual practice.
