Tweak to Transform: Improving Teaching: A Practical Handbook for School Leaders
Improving teaching is the key to genuine and sustainable school
improvement. Improvement involves persuading teachers to change and
develop their practice. This book focuses on what head teachers and
school leaders can do to manage the change process and improve the
quality of teaching in a school.
Mike Hughes has extensive experience of working with teachers to help them develop and improve their classroom practice. During an eighteen year teaching career, he worked as a head of department, deputy head and head teacher, and spent time working in an advisory capacity for Gloucestershire LEA in the field of teaching and learning. He is now advising and supporting a wide variety of schools in their efforts to improve teaching quality, both working at strategic leadership level and coaching individual teachers in the classroom. Having led a large secondary school, David Potter spent fifteen years in LEA advisory services, the last five of them as Chief Advisor in Gloucestershire. He is a Registered OFSTED Inspector, a Performance Management Consultant and a trainer on the NPQH programme.
