Course descriptionChartered Teachers are expected to collaborate with others to lead and support change and development in learning and teaching. Course 2 enabled participants to develop the necessary knowledge understandings and practices to focus on their immediate context to develop the role of lead learner. Course 3 required teachers to look beyond their own practice and to critically consider key issues related to social justice, curriculum and pedagogy. Tho build upon and further extend practices developed through this prior study, this 4th course is designed to support teachers in the challenging quest of working collaboratively with others to effect sustainable change. To do so requires relevant interpersonal skills and an understanding of the processes involved in leading and supporting change and development.

To extend participants' understanding and practice in research for practitioners, methods for collaborative working and inquiry will be explored.
