Quality Teaching

Evidence confirms that excellent teaching is the single most powerful in-school influence on student achievement  (Hattie, 2003; OECD, 2005). Given the importance of teachers to school effectiveness and student outcomes, the success of most school improvement initiatives depends on how they affect teachers and the quality of teaching. This is why effective performance and development cultures are critical to improving quality teaching and learning outcomes for all students.
