Welcome & Introduction

The Instructional Leadership Programme (ILP) is committed to enhancing teaching, learning and assessment in Irish classrooms and exploring teacher professional identity through:

supporting teachers to acquire the conceptual awareness and vocabulary by which they can articulate their practice and engage in meaningful professional conversations with colleagues

extending teachers’ instructional repertoires of tactics, skills and strategies and deepening their awareness of how and why they invoke various interventions and actions in the classroom.

In this regard, and in the context of the continuing implementation of Junior Cycle, the Instructional Leadership Programme is collaborating with the NCCA in a project focused on Learner Voice.  This project will seek to identify, support and share practices rooted in the principles of Instructional Leadership that promote students talking about learning, teaching and assessment in the classroom, and being empowered through creative and thoughtful pedagogical practices to use their voice to enhance their own learning.
