Professional Development Seminar on Lesson Planning

For the third year in a row, we continue to offer our tutors the Professional Development Programme. In the series of six seminars, tutors have the opportunity to expand their knowledge of recent ideas in pedagogy, share experience of working with students and explore new approaches to teaching their subject. In the first Professional Development Seminar this academic year, our tutors met to further their knowledge on planning well-structured and purposeful lessons that fit into a long-term teaching plan.

Professional Development Seminar on Communication

This week, nine of our tutors attended a Professional Development Seminar titled “Communication skills, inspiring confidence and providing honest feedback”. Led by Milda Sabunaite, the seminar focussed on useful strategies in helping pupils engage with subject material, preparing engaging and interactive lessons, as well as ensuring that both pupils and parents receive regular and honest feedback on the lesson progress.

The monthly Seminars are a part of the Tutor Professional Development Programme at Trefoil.

Tutors attend Seminar on Lesson Planning

This week, our tutors Tom, Will, Ria, Arjun, Danielle attended a Professional Development Seminar on Lesson Planning led by Vivek Gathani. Tutors had the opportunity to work with a professional teacher and learn more about pedagogical theory, as well as discuss ways to adapt this knowledge to a one-to-one tutoring setting. The tutors picked up useful ideas for new activities to be used when working with pupils, in order to make sure the lessons are engaging and interactive.
