Data driven instruction is the core business of teachers’ work, enabling teachers with a process of practice that targets instruction to meet the needs of all students. Consisting of a cyclical set of stages, teachers collect, collate and analyse student data to inform planning. Throughout the cycle, teachers participate in critical reflection to consider their teaching practice and the impact of their teaching on student learning. In doing so, teachers have a mechanism by which their teaching can undergo continuous improvement for the benefit of all students.

The coursework focuses upon the implementation of a data driven instruction cycle through the Graduate Teacher Performance Assessment (GTPA). The course requires pre-service teachers to gather evidence of the teacher they are becoming and evaluate the impact this has upon their learners as well as justifying their repertoire of teaching practices.

This course contains a 25-day placement and is the final Professional Experience Placement within the following contexts:
