XLence in Teaching and Leadership Framework
We have developed a Framework to support schools in securing good and excellent teaching. Following the publication of the new Professional Standards by Welsh Government, we have developed the resource to provide a complete solution for School Improvement, through monitoring teaching, learning and leadership, tracking performance management and evaluating the impact of CPD and professional learning.
Aligned to the new Teaching and Leadership standards for Education in Wales, the frameworks provide clear guidance for staff on each element of the standards and what it means for their professional practice, whilst aligning with the principles of the Standards by being focused on promoting dialogue through prompts rather than giving descriptors to “tick off”.
It is an online and digital tool, and is supported by paper resources. It is available in Welsh and English and has been developed in partnership with ‘For Schools Education Services’ and a number of Welsh schools.
