If you are interested in developing Mantle of the Expert then at some point you will want to access training.
Tim Taylor, Luke Abbott, and other members of the Mantle of the Expert team have over twenty years experience in teaching, coaching, and training teachers in the use of the approach. We believe if you want to talk with integrity about teaching and learning you have to work regularly with children, so all our courses offer the option of demonstrating the approach in the classroom, with students and staff.
We offer a range of training courses including:
- Introductory days for schools and clusters
- Immersive residential weekends for beginners, intermediate, and advanced users
- Conference events with workshops
- Long and short courses with demonstration lessons and workshops
Our team of trainers has extensive experience at organising and running courses. As practising teachers we are fully aware of the ever-changing requirements of Ofsted and the political pressures from the DfE, not to mention the challenges of working with real students in the classroom. For these reasons, our courses are practical and realistic, offering teaching strategies and planning formats that really work at engaging children and challenging them to achieve more.
Beginners: These courses include one-day insets, residential weekends and short courses, involving practical workshops, seminars and demonstration lessons.
Beginners courses introduce participants to the key strategies of inquiry, drama for learning and mantle of the expert, and include:
- Developing student and teacher questioning
- Creating a community of inquiry
- Using drama as medium for learning
Core: These courses are for experienced users of Mantle of the Expert who have completed a beginners course and have some experience of using the approach in the classroom. We run core courses as in-school and inter-school networks and as residential weekends.
On a core course participants extend their understanding and use of the key strategies of inquiry, drama for learning, and Mantle of the Expert, and are introduced to further more advanced strategies.
Advanced: These courses are for experienced users of Mantle of the Expert who have completed their earlier courses and have extensive experience of using the approach in the classroom. We run advanced courses as in-school and inter-school networks and as residential weekends.
On an advanced course participants further extend their understanding and use of the key strategies of inquiry, drama for learning and Mantle of the Expert, and are introduced to further advanced strategies.
