Making time for teachers.
Raising standards for pupils.
Time4Teachers was established in response to the ever increasing demands faced by teachers and leaders in primary schools. As budgets are stretched and resources squeezed, Time4Teachers aims to provide high quality planning, teaching resources, assessment tools and training which reduce teacher workload without compromising on pupil outcomes and experience. Time4Teachers offers teachers and leaders fully planned and resourced units which are SKILLS LED. Progression is mapped throughout each unit and linked to differentiated skills based assessment tools to ensure that each pupil’s progress is securely tracked. Although the units are topic based, each separate subject, with its skills, can be clearly identified to ensure that pupils are clear about the subject they are studying.
Units can be purchased individually and taught as part of your school’s current curriculum plan; they can be purchased as a whole, ready-made, curriculum or schools can select units to build a new plan which is bespoke to their school. To support curriculum leaders in planning and developing their curriculum, each unit includes a differentiated overview of the skills which will be taught. This ensures complete curriculum coverage and allows progression in both knowledge and skills to be easily tracked. This has all been developed with the 2019 Ofsted framework in mind.
Time4Teachers is developing a wide range of text based English units. These units are skills led and provide opportunities for teachers to teach all aspects of the English curriculum (including grammar, spelling and punctuation) through a text. This is not only more inspiring for pupils, it also demonstrates how the skills they are learning are used for a real purpose. There are clear links between the Time4Teachers long term planning, short term planning, differentiated skills ladders and assessment resources to provide a co-ordinated system. The majority of units are planned for two consecutive year groups to support the teaching of mixed aged classes. All units have a clear reading and writing focus and promote the independent development of skills. Where appropriate, cross curricular links between topics and English text based plans are developed.
If you there is a particular topic or subject you would like support in developing in your school, please contact us. Time4teachers can offer a range of support options for teachers and leaders in school.
Time4Teachers also leads a number of CPD courses and conferences, can lead inset or twilight sessions in school or can provide 1:1 or small group training to develop the skills of individual members of staff. Areas of expertise include: English teaching, learning and assessment, History and Geography teaching learning and assessment, subject leadership, leadership development, school evaluation and improvement planning and marking and feedback. Trainers are experienced specialists in these areas.
All CPD courses and consultancy work is competitively priced to support schools in developing their staff at a time of reducing budgets.
We look forward to hearing from you
