Teacher Effectiveness Enhancement Programme (TEEP)

What is the Teacher Effectiveness Enhancement Programme (TEEP)?

  • A framework for effective teaching and learning developed from research evidence
  • An effective whole staff continuing professional development programme
  • A developmental process not a product
  • Linked to an educational charity and not-for-profit
  • Delivered by outstanding teacher practitioners who have themselves been through all levels of TEEP training
  • Generic – all subjects, all phases

A Brief History of TEEP
  • In 2002, Derek Wise (previous Head teacher of Cramlington Learning Village) and Mark Lovatt (Deputy Head teacher) worked with Dee Palmer Jones (Director TEEP) to develop a model of teaching and learning (the TEEP cycle) on behalf of the Gatsby foundation based on academic research and best practice. The early focus was on Science and Maths but the TEEP framework soon proved applicable for every subject at every key stage.
  • Between 2002 and 2010, more than 4,000 teachers were trained on the original Level 1 TEEP courses (each lasting five days and targeted at classroom teachers), and more than 500 were trained at Level 2 (a further three-day course for Heads of Department, Advanced Skills Teachers and subject coaches).
  • In September 2010, Gatsby passed the management and development of TEEP to the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust. The SSAT currently trains over 2000 teachers a year.

Evidence of Impact

  • There is an ever growing store of testimonials and comments from Students / Teachers / Head teachers
  • There are Independent evaluation reports from The University of Warwick (2002-5), London Institute of Education (2003-6) and The University of York (2005-9)
  • There are many Ofsted reports from TEEP schools and an increasing number of Ofsted reports now refer to the programme as contributing to an improvement in the quality of a school’s teaching and learning. In some cases TEEP has been instrumental in moving schools out of ‘special measures’.

All Hallows is The National TEEP Champion School

All Hallows Catholic College was the first school to pilot the whole school training model and the close partnership with the SSAT bid to take over the running of TEEP resulted in the College becoming the National TEEP Champion School, as a valued strategic partner. As time has progressed other schools have been invited to become either ‘TEEP Training Schools’ or ‘TEEP Ambassador Schools’ to ensure the TEEP programme is self sustaining and at the service of an ever growing number of schools who adopt the model.

In the latest OUTSTANDING Ofsted report (December 2014) it is said that ‘the outstanding quality of teaching enables students to make outstanding progress in almost all subjects across the college’ and that ‘teachers are systematic in helping students to learn.’ These an many other comments are directly attributable to the TEEP way of teaching which has become the ‘All Hallows Way of Teaching and Learning.’ Read our Ofsted Outstanding reports to identify the impact of TEEP over time.
