Collaborative Enquiry Training

For teachers wanting to engage in research-informed practice and raise their pupil outcomes.

The TDT collaborative enquiry training is designed to equip teachers to design and implement collaborative enquiry in their school.

Participants will be supported to carry out an enquiry with colleagues over at least two terms. This training provides an opportunity for participants to engage in practitioner research and work with colleagues to critically reflect on practice.

Book this training to:

  • improve outcomes for pupils, particularly the most disadvantaged, through effective teacher development
  • cultivate a culture of enquiry and critical reflection built on high quality professional conversations
  • develop a research informed approach to teaching and learning
  • provide opportunities for colleagues to share best practice and develop collective expertise

Who should take part?

This training is aimed at practitioners interested in engaging with educational research and working collaboratively with colleagues to critically reflect on teaching and learning practice. A range of teaching experience is encouraged, this individualised approach to professional development is as powerful for novice and expert teachers.
