Improving the Quality of Teaching
Software To Help Motivate and Engage Staff
CPD Access 24/7
We record an individual’s CPD implemented and its effectiveness. And the staff member has their own personal CPD log they can access at any time from anywhere. Staff Appraisals and meetings with managers are also part of the system.
Help Staff Develop –
With Action Plans & Follow Ups
Set and monitor objectives and action points to show what’s being done and the effectiveness of actions taken to improve the quality of teaching and learning through staff support and training. Compliance is helped by automatic weekly emails listing points requiring follow up.
SHARE Good Practice Easily
Upload video, documents, sound files, images, PowerPoint etc. this lesson observation software makes the sharing of good practice quick and easy
Learning Through Encounter
Don’t let lesson observations become a “black hole” for time. All observation types are recorded online and the “workload” can be spread among all levels of staff. Different levels of access filter what an individual can see and do in the lesson observation software – from Managers and Line Managers to observees.
Determine Strengths & Weaknesses
of Specified Teachers
Up to 30 Key Performance Indicators can be tracked, allowing for an accurate Risk Band system. Every teacher development app should have this feature.
How Do Staff See
The Observation/Assessment Process?
An Evaluation Form option allows the observee to give their feedback for a lesson
observation. This will help keep all staff on board.

FAST support if you need it
Also included is our fast response email and phone support service, as well as online “context related” help and the option to download a PDF manual. To make sure you get off to a flying start, we will import your teachers’ details and a member of our staff will log on with you to go through the initial setup of users and access levels.
I have suggested several changes. These have been implemented quickly and now make the programme more tailored to our needs and easier to use. This is our second year using the software. Initially we are using this to record our lesson observations but hope to extend this to include Observation Types for learning walks and work scrutiny.
Liverpool Adult Learning Service
Easy access and storage of tutor assessments, observations and action planning. It was great to see the tutor interacting with the comments. I can see immense benefit for gathering tutor feedback on their own development and input to the quality process.
Kent Community Learning And Skills
A presentation of the software was given to 18 Headteachers in the network group Spelthorne Schools Together and was very well received. If you would like a presentation to your network group or your school/college, please contact us on 01985 844087 .
