“When every child in every school experiences outstanding teaching our work will be done”
OLEVI International specialise in providing courses that aid in the training and development of teachers, teaching assistants and facilitators to ensure they take their skills to the next level and into the classroom.
We are committed to the development of skills and leadership in the educational sector, providing support and courses to headteachers and chief facilitators to help develop their staff.
OLEVI offer a range of highly powerful and effective courses, including our Improving Teacher Programme (ITP) and Outstanding Teacher Programme (OTP) to help in the development of teaching staff in order to improve the quality of teaching. This in turn leads to consequent improvements in learning outcomes for pupils and help to raise schools to levels of outstanding achievement and learning experience.
Our training and development programmes are nationally-renowned and are designed around the framework of several models, including the Teaching & Learning, Leadership and Coaching Model (TLC).
These are particularly effective as they not only support, develop and challenge the professional practice of teachers, but ensure that improvement is ongoing and organically sustainable using our unique DR ICE collaborative learning model.
This in turn helps to create a cultural change, having a significant impact on the educational landscape, creating a ripple-effect that can have far-reaching effects, helping to benefit the performance of the whole school including teaching staff and facilitators right down to the students themselves.
At OLEVI International we have a large portfolio of available courses and are always adding more programmes, visit our programmes page for a full list of our teaching and leadership courses and find out why school leaders and governing bodies increasingly value working with OLEVI.
Our training programmes offer an opportunity for school leaders and governing bodies to invest in and empower their staff in order to take control of growing excellence in their own school and that of others; becoming leaders of learning in the process.
You can view a number of case studies in our Library section, including testimonials from schools who have worked with OLEVI and made use of our teacher development programmes as part of their own learning journeys.
Participating in the OTP, OFP and the POC Train the Trainers in quick succession has been quite a whirlwind, but it has without a doubt been the most worthwhile professional development that I have experienced. Having a regular opportunity to reflect on my teaching and learning practice, and trading ideas and experiences with like-minded teachers, has had a profound impact on my teaching ability and my enjoyment of the job.
Andrew Grabham, Facilitator, Ysgol Gymraeg Bro Morgannwg
Everyone delivering education needs a boost now and again and attending the OTP programme reignited my enthusiasm for the career I chose many moons ago! This has been a particularly stimulating experience and I have championed the programme to other school leaders.
Menna J Roberts, Assistant Head, Ysgol Gymraeg Bro Morgannwg Primary Phase
Being part of the OLEVI OTP programme has been the most valuable experience of my teaching career to date, and both myself and my pupils have benefited immensely. It has changed my expectations within lessons and has given me both the courage and confidence to give my pupils more independence and freedom. This in turn has impacted on the department as our discussions are more open and focused on teaching and learning.
