The Teacher Development Trust will be offering schools from their network the chance to work with Rising Stars and pilot Rising Stars Mathematics and new reading resources. These schools will draw upon the professional development support from Rising Stars as well as professional development tools and resources from the TDT, including our Lesson Study approach and CPD Audit.
We know that effective professional development includes a sustained, collaborative programme of teachers working to improve pupil learning. This needs to carefully integrate the necessary subject knowledge and specialist pedagogical knowledge through engagement with experts and evidence-informed resources. We are therefore excited about this new project which draws on the latest research about reading, systematic synthetic phonics, and mastery-led approaches to mathematics drawing from the best practice from the UK and the Far East.
