Teacher Led Development Work

The TLDW course is an action research project where teachers meet in a group throughout the year to collaborate and further develop their project. TLDW stands for Teacher Led Development Work and upon successful completion the teacher receives a certificate in post-graduate study. This TLDW course is run through HertsCam which was formed as combination of the University of Hertfordshire and Cambridge University.  Throughout the year teachers meet for six twilight sessions and attend inspiring network events at schools throughout Hertfordshire.  These provide an excellent opportunity to share good practice with staff in other schools and to gain ideas.  The Annual Conference is held at Cambridge Univeristy.  The TLDW certificate in post-graduate study gives the succesful teacher credits which can be used as part of a Masters in Education.  The Potters Bar TLDW group is run at Dame Alice Owen's School and also has teachers involved from Mount Grace School and Yavneh College.
