THE JOY OF NOT KNOWING (JONK)

Marcelo Staricoff, FCCT, NPQH, PHD presents an introductory briefing on The Joy of Not Knowing (JONK) philosophy of education and leadership exclusively for the Headteachers of Ealing Primary Schools.

The Joy of Not Knowing (JONK) philosophy of education and leadership focuses on key principal areas of influence, linked to the new Inspection Framework’s three stage vision of excellence: Intent, Implementation, Impact.

JONK establishes an ethos and culture based on values, philosophical enquiry, children’s rights, critical and creative thinking and lifelong learning dispositions designed to maximise children’s enjoyment of learning, their well-being, their life chances and the school’s potential of collective efficacy by embracing leadership at all levels.

Developing a love of not knowing, removing worry and barriers from the learning process and instilling an intrinsic motivation to want to learn, to develop a deep and lifelong love of learning and to develop the capacity for schools to evolve and adapt within the continually changing educational landscape and national evidenced-based reports.

Leadership Development – NPQML & NPQSL

At the West London Teaching Alliance, we believe that high quality Continuing Professional Development that equips teachers to excel in their roles at all stages of their careers is the key to disseminating and sustaining best practice in schools.

The importance of sharing best practice cannot be overstated because all children deserve to have the opportunity to be supported and nurtured using all that the teaching profession currently has to offer.

The foremost qualifications offering national recognition of teachers’ leadership development and professional achievement within a school setting are the National Professional Qualifications for Middle and Senior Leadership (NPQML and NPQSL).

The West London Teaching Alliance (WLTA Montpelier) will be running the National Professional Qualifications for Middle and Senior Leadership during the academic year 2019 – 2020. The WLTA provides these in conjunction with the Institute of Education at UCL which is the world leader for this accredited training and, for the past two years, our delegate and external (UCL) evaluations have been outstanding. Crucially, the NPQML and NPQSL Face to Face sessions at the west London Teaching Alliance are facilitated by experienced Headteachers from a range of schools in Ealing and West London.

Over the last two years, the WLTA has trained over 60 middle and senior leaders, most of whom work in Ealing schools. The testimonials received from participants of the NPQML and NPQSL programme at Montpelier Primary School have been extremely positive:

“Great trainers that provided priceless information and support”

“All sessions were amazing but this one in particular as it really helped us to see how we can implement all that we have learnt into our assignments.”

“Fantastic trainers, full of enthusiasm.”

In order to register your expression of interest for either the NPQML or NPQSL programme at the WLTA, please complete the short expression of interest form linked to below:

  • Courses will run from November to March / April.
  • NPQML 5 days – Total cost £890
  • NPQSL 6 days – Total cost £1,100

School Direct (Salaried)

Working in partnership with the University of Roehampton, the WLTA has supported nine School Direct Trainees placed in seven alliance schools through the academic year 2019-20. This first ever cohort of 9 WLTA School Direct Trainees have been resoundingly successful, with all nine successfully gaining their PGCE and QTS qualifications. 90% of our School Direct Trainees have secured NQT posts for September 2020 with the vast majority staying at the schools that fostered them through their School Direct Year.

The WLTA offers a mandatory school based Complementary Training Plan comprising of 15 sessions across the year to ensure that trainees experience of a range of professional learning during the year. The topics covered include the professional environment, key curriculum subjects, Safeguarding, Prevent, resilience, areas of pedagogy and essential classroom skills. Further, the WLTA organises free bespoke support for school based mentors, class teachers and trainees beyond the basic offer, ensuring that each deployment runs as smoothly as possible.

On the 8th of November, 2019 (details above), the WLTA will be holding a briefing for the leadership of Schools in Ealing in advance of the 2020-21 WLTA School Direct Programme. Key topics covered will include:

Schools that use PGCE students from Roehampton gain the greatest benefit as the School Direct programme and its assessment system is common across both programmes, making the management and organisation for mentors considerably easier.

Employing School Direct Trainees can help support capacity in schools and prove a cost-effective way to address recruitment issues generated by the mobility of teachers.

University of Roehampton School Direct Trainees the spend 4 days each week at school throughout the year. This will allow schools to plan staff deployment more effectively.

School Direct Trainees achieve higher PGCE grades than students through other PGCE routes because of the extensive classroom experience they gain.
