Why us?

You'll be joining the 1 in 11 teachers and leaders in state-funded schools who are currently developing professionally with Ambition.

This programme is designed to improve teaching, boost retention and support career progression. Tailored to the needs and context of your school, this programme uses robust evidence and is delivered by our expert teacher educators.

High-impact teachers are educators who demonstrate exceptional effectiveness in driving positive outcomes and growth in student learning, including those with untapped potential who may benefit from additional support.

The programme provides up to 30 of your high-impact teachers with one year of professional development. It develops foundational knowledge, expertise and a shared understanding of effective teaching and learning approaches.

You will be given access to an online diagnostic survey to help you decide which programme content works best for your school or trust. The survey focuses on teachers’ views on behaviour, instructional practices, pupil learning and responsive teaching. Using the survey results Ambition generates a unique diagnostic report to reveal key areas of strength and areas for development.


The High Impact Teaching provides training for up to 30 classroom teachers and middle leaders.

It provides support with core elements of teachers’ pedagogical practices such as classroom culture, routines for learning, motivation, modelling, consolidation and others.

Facilitated twilight sessions

Following the findings of the diagnostic survey, you can choose four modules from the following list:

  • Building classroom culture
  • Routines for learning
  • Building motivation
  • Effective modelling
  • Independent practice
  • Consolidation
  • Supporting transfer
  • Responsive teaching

You will receive 16 hours of facilitated twilight sessions.

Science of learning

You will also receive one independent self-study 45-minute science of learning session.

Before the programme starts

We'll organise a half-day meeting between the Ambition Institute training lead and the school lead for this High Impact Teaching programme (usually the senior leader with responsibility for Teaching & Learning/CPD). This is to discuss the aims and structure of the programme and overall expectations.

We'll also complete a joint learning walk to review the teaching and learning across the school, this will help to diagnose the highest leverage areas for us to focus on.


The High Impact Teaching programme costs £6,000, which equates to just £200 per participant when filling all 30 places.
