Staff Development Policy


The Departments staffing development policy is closely linked to the National Curriculum and the way the subject appears to be developing. The views and aspirations of individual members of staff have also to be taken into account. These are discussed regularly at Departmental meetings and informally.

Staff development is a priority especially in view of the school becoming a Technology College. This will enable the Department to deliver effectively any new courses and use new equipment, including ICT equipment.

Many of the older skills such as graphics techniques, drafting and craft skills (including Food) are still very important and it is possible that the new courses will continue to place great emphasis in these areas. Staff from time to time will need to up-date with new skills as well as refresh old ones.

Aspects such as, robotics and ICT will continue to be interesting sections of any new course, especially if the school continues to deliver a discrete Technology course.

The main priorities for the Department are as follows:
computer control
CNC
electronics
new Food courses (if applicable)

The Technology Department would also like the opportunity to attend pastoral and management courses.


Induction of NQTs and trainee teachers

Newly Qualified Teachers and trainee teachers will be helped to settle into the Department and school in the following ways;

They will be made aware of both school and Departmental policies and be given associated hand books/documents (including Health and Safety documentation). The Head of Department will explain these.

Time will be made available for the NQT to observe lessons of other members of the Department and lesson structures will be discussed. If the NQT is D.T based the he/she will be aware of the basic DT lesson structure.

NQT lessons will be observed by the Head of Department and discussed in detail, advice being given when required. Regular meetings will take place between the head of department and NQTs, for reviews.

In the first year the NQT will be supervised carefully especially with regard to lesson content, lesson structure, discipline, assessment and recording and lesson preparation.

NQTs will be encouraged to participate in school working parties (curriculum, reporting and recording etc...)

Communication and Consultation Methods

Communication in the Technology Department is through a number of methods, both formal and informal. Departmental meetings are held regularly and these have full agendas and are minuted in detail. All staff have the opportunity to raise any points/issues. All Departmental minutes are passed on to members of the Department, as well as the Head Teacher.

The members of the Department regularly discuss educational and Departmental issues informally and although these are not minuted they are of equal value and often points discussed are often found on Departmental minutes at a later date where they are discussed extensively.

Memos have been used in the past as an official way of passing information to other members of the Department.
 

Appraisal of Staff


Members of the department will be appraised each year. In term one a meeting will be held between the head of department and individual staff. This meeting will be concerned with a review of the previous years targets and the setting of new targets. Staff will negotiate three targets, one should be linked to academic achievement. During term two a lesson observation will take place with staff providing a detailed lesson plan with aims and objectives clearly stated. A meeting in the second/third term (as soon as possible after the lesson observation) will concentrate on professional development, an informal review of the year, a progress report and most importantly - a review of the observed lesson.

 

All meetings and lessons observations will be recorded on paper. Staff will be given photocopies of records.
