The potential of Teacher Learning Communities in education

Schools are increasingly embracing the idea of giving their teachers time to share best practice, learn together and improve their skills as a group. Amy Benziane discusses Teacher Learning Communities and the approaches that have proved successful in her

Something I have always valued is the opportunity to network with other teachers. 

For me, the chance to meet with colleagues always seems to strike a great balance between discussing our plans for embedding newly found pedagogy and showing off our latest zany idea (whether it went well or badly!) within a supportive environment.

My ability to trial other teachers’ ideas and report back to colleagues at my own school has proven to be as fun as it is useful to developing my practice.

Within our school, the communication and the sharing of ideas is refreshingly effective. We have weekly Butterflies and “Tuesday Teaching Treats” (based on developing literacy and effective teaching strategies).
