OTP and ITP
Working in collaboration, the five Trafford Teaching Schools join together to present the OLEVI Teaching and Learning Programmes.
Now well established and highly valued CPD opportunities, the OTP (Outstanding Teacher Programme)and ITP (Improving Teacher Programme) are run by experienced and licensed trainers.
Each Programme is delivered at several venues over the academic year (to offer diversity of location) by the same Lead Facilitator thus providing a stable point of contact for the group.
Courses are advertised throughout the year and applicants can book a place with any of the schools involved.
