Professional Learning: Using the Code, Using the Standards - a Loop Forum event for school leaders

Tues 19 Nov, 1.00 - 3.30pm

Wellington Girls' College

At Forum meetings we develop connections with each other, share experiences and programmes, discuss best practice, and collaborate on issues of strategic importance. Our guest presenter at the 19 November session will be Andrew Savage, Acting Manager, Innovation and Collaboration at the NZ Teaching Council.  

Purpose of this session:

  • To gain clarity on where we are currently at, in relation to Appraisal;
  • To deepen our understanding of ways to use the Code and Standards to support professional learning;
  • To share ideas and examples of the different approaches that we take in our Loop schools, in order to refine our thinking.

Session outline:

First half - Andrew Savage will discuss:

  • a short update and clarification on the current state regarding Appraisal;

Second half - An opportunity to share ideas about the approaches we use:
