With the focus on Self Directed Learning, our teachers are taking the increasingly important stance of essential learning partners, guiding, supporting and steering students according to their needs, preferences and abilities. It is opening up the most wonderful opportunities to all students and is producing amazing outcomes.
Our campus in Plymouth is making a significant contribution to career progression and professional development in independent education. Our focus is on recruiting, training and retaining. Teachers are drawn from both the state and independent sectors and a breadth of cultural and professional diversity has created a strong teaching structure that we’re keen to keep strengthening.
We value and support our staff and work with NQT and NPQH schemes to ensure they get the status and qualifications they need and deserve. Of the 1,600 dedicated educational professionals employed globally, over 600 work in the UK in close cooperation, sharing best practice, professional learning opportunities and resources.
The development of learning and teaching in Focus schools, including the introduction of the inclusive classroom, a differentiated curriculum and the pursuit of the self-directed learning pathway, has created an opportunity for the creative and innovative teachers who want to take the challenge outside the norms of the traditional classroom. As a result, we are experiencing high job satisfaction and excellent student outcomes.
Increasing technology for learning, online teaching and the virtual classroom environment aren’t for everyone, but the Focus Learning Network gives teachers the power to deliver, making online teaching and teaching technology a natural part of your career path. The brand new Teacher Academy gives teachers the confidence to deliver, where training and professional development becomes an essential part of your career portfolio, driving progress in learning and teaching throughout the Focus organisation.
