Teachers as Learners: Developing professional competence through deep reflection and reflective practice

Almost 400 Teachers, Teaching Assistants and Headteachers from 16 schools in 9 countries attended the COBIS/King's Group Professional Development Weekend at King's College, Madrid 6-7 November 2015.

The theme of the weekend was Teachers as Learners: Developing Professional Competence Through Deep Reflection and Reflective Practice. Mungo Dunnett opened proceedings with an insightful Keynote Speech on Key Determinants of Parental Satisfaction with Private Schools.

The weekend included a range of interactive and engaging sessions aimed at all Subject Leaders, Teachers and Teaching Assistants including Outdoor Play, Developing Effective and Meaningful Oracy in School through Storytelling, Developing Desirable Personal Qualities Through Physical Activities, Middle Leadership and many more.

As well as networking sessions built in to the programme, delegates, exhibitors and guests enjoyed a Gala Cocktail Dinner on the Friday evening at the Hotel Eurostars Madrid Tower. This provided colleagues from schools around the world with an excellent opportunity to mix and mingle whilst tasting a wide range of delicious Spanish tapas dishes.

COBIS would like to thank colleagues at King's Group for hosting a fantastic Professional Development Weekend.
