At the GFM we are proud to have a wide range of excellent practice in teaching and learning, both online and onsite, across all schools and phases of the organisation. We believe that sharing this excellent practice is an important part of our collective improvement journey and we have established a Directory of Best Practice across the Trust. We want to showcase the skills, talents and successes of our staff and encourage individuals to open up their classrooms (both physical and online) for others to experience and learn from.
About the Institute of Education
The guiding principle of the Institute of Education is to seek deeper understanding of how young people and adults learn by engaging in rigorous educational enquiry and research and to drive ‘next practice’ through enhanced understanding.
The core focus of the IOE is to ensure that all colleagues across the GFM have access to a diverse range of career phase appropriate and high quality professional learning opportunities. Through our partnerships with external institutions the IOE will enable and support colleagues to deliver Initial Teacher Training, thus securing high quality future teaching staff for schools within the GFM.
The intent of the IOE’s work across the GFM is characterised by an ethos and commitment to social justice; that every young person regardless of their background achieves beyond their expectation and progresses to where they previously had not imagined or thought possible.
Professional Learning Resources
The IOE’s Professional Learning site gives colleagues access to any current and future professional learning opportunities on offer. GFM colleagues can access the IOE Professional Learning site by logging into G Suite using their work email address and password.
