Professional learning

To raise the achievement of boys in your school, build the capability of teachers to meet the needs of your boys.

Do so through ongoing professional learning.

Research is clear – effective teaching makes the biggest in-school difference to student achievement. It also identifies that there is a positive relationship between ongoing professional learning and effective teaching.

Professional learning to raise the engagement and achievement of boys in your school is about engaging in professional discussions and using evidence to challenge and inform your teaching practice.

It can be supported by:

  •  seeing examples of others engaging in professional learning to engage boys in learning
  •  using learning materials as a basis for discussions
  •  creating examples of evidence
  •  sharing evidence about effective teaching strategies to provide for the diverse learning needs of boys in your school.
