National Teacher Enquiry Network

The National Teacher Enquiry Network, run by the Teacher Development Trust, is a collaborative partnership of schools and colleges focussed on innovation and improvement through highly effective and evidence-based staff professional development and learning.

At the heart of it is the idea that the best professional development occurs when teachers collaboratively plan lessons, observe, collect and discuss data, and reflect on the effect of the teaching activities on learners. In particular, we promote the popular Lesson Study approach to professional learning.

With peer assessment, expert guides and support, events and NTEN Lesson Study, this is a Network with the power to raise attainment, reduce inequality and transform your school.
Benefits of joining include:

    • A peer audit against our CPD Quality Framework, with Bronze, Silver and Gold awards.
    • Comprehensive resources to help your staff engage in NTEN Lesson Study with support for evidence- and research-based teacher enquiry along with a rigorous approach to evaluation of impact.
    • A series of national and regional conferences to foster networking and sharing of ideas.
    • Access to a national network of like-minded schools with partnerships and visits to observe and develop outstanding practice.
    • Shared resources to help your school improve policies and practices around professional development, performance management and introducing innovation.
    • A strong, collective voice with the capacity and opportunity to influence policy maker
