What does our certification for Associated Teachers mean?
Level 1 - has demonstrated a grasp of the basic principles, procedures and questioning strategies during an enquiry.
Level 2 - has demonstrated an ability to use the basic principles, procedures and questioning strategies and can follow and deepen the children’s conceptual understanding.
Level 3 - can integrate the questioning / enquiry skills and strategies into their curriculum teaching. These teachers can also support other teachers, and develop their own lesson plans.
Level 4 - these teachers make use of key facilitation skills to help teach critical thinking alongside running enquiries.
Certification is only kept for a year, and on-going observation and professional development is needed to retain Associated Teacher status.
