TEEP and CAKE came about after a series of inspirational CPD training sessions delivered by Corinne Settle and as a result of this, we have embedded the features of the TEEP programme into our Standard Operational Procedures. The TEEP programme had a huge impact on many aspects of classroom life at UTC that it has now become common place. The learners are more motivated than ever and they really enjoy the new and inspiring methods of teaching that have been bought into the classroom arena.
TEEP has reinvented both teaching and learning and has created a more engaging and dynamic arena in which to study.
The TEEP approach has also helped to support our teaching staff in creating a truly unique learning environment for our students. The Learning Cycle has enriched teaching by creating effective teacher behaviours and underpinning what the teacher and learner are actually doing in the lesson.
Our 2 day TEEP initial training in Birmingham was met with some scepticism for staff but that soon changed as we launched into workshops with our other UTC colleagues. We came away not only inspired but I feel we really pulled the team together. We are all on the same train and we are going ion the right direction.
In a wider sense TEEP is helping us focus on specific teaching and learning that is relevant and rigorous. Already the landscape of teachers classrooms are changing and we are captivating and motivating our learners to want to succeed.
