Making schools successful takes more than just individual effort - it takes teamwork. Schools are using teams to accomplish many tasks.
Effective teams do not develop by accident. Teams take time, skills and knowledge to be successful.
Traditionally, a team goes through five stages of development. Each stage of team development presents its own special challenges to a group of people striving to work together successfully by forming a cohesive team. Teamwork should focus on meeting the academic and social needs of all students in the school.
Professional Learning Teams (PLTs) are an approach to school improvement where groups of teachers work collaboratively at the school level to improve student outcomes.
Rationale: Professional Learning Teams (PLTs) assist in the planning and delivery of the key learning areas across the school. Each team should be led by a staff member who has experience and expertise in their field.
Prepare your 2018 teams by taking advantage of the professional learning opportunity.
