Best Practice Focus: How and why we need to change INSET

INSET days just do not work – and we should stop pretending that they do. But how can we change our approach? Joel Wirth discusses a new approach: Teacher Learning Days

INSET Days are often grossly inefficient and appallingly wasteful of precious resources. But what can we do to make them better?

In this Best Practice Focus, Joel Wirth considers how INSET needs to change if they are to be an effective part of whole-school CPD practice.

He sets out the reasons why INSET so often fails to reach all teaching staff and considers an alternative evidence-based approach – the Teacher Learning Day, a day of bespoke, self-directed, in-house professional learning that is the right of every teacher in your organisation.
