Why us?

This programme is designed to improve teaching, boost retention and support career progression. Tailored to the needs and context of your school, this programme is based on robust evidence and 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 to 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. More information on the modules available is provided on the table.

Facilitated twilight sessions

  • Following the findings of the diagnostic survey, you can choose three modules from the table.
  • 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.
