Targeting weaknesses in exam results


The challenge for school leaders at this time of year is determining how to immediately improve teaching performance in those subjects or areas that are underperforming. Immediate, targeted intervention is required, with weekly evidence gathering on improvement and impact to provide confidence that these weaknesses can be overcome. This is what the 9ine Digital Learning Programme provides

Through two, six week coaching programmes, we enable school leaders to measurably improve areas of weakness through:

  • 144 Coached Lessons
  • 144 lesson reports
  • 24 teachers trained
  • 4 trained coaches
  • 30 quality reports on internal coaching
  • 24 student voice sessions
  • 24 self-evaluations
  • 6 evidence and impact reports
  • 6 whole-school skills summaries
  • 18 shared classroom practice articles

We do this through a structured methodology to embed best practice in teaching, using and improving the current resources your teachers have available already. Each week, we work with teachers to overcome identified weaknesses, providing active support to effectively use teaching strategies such as feedback, differentiation, homework, assessment, collaboration, progress and engagement to to improve impact.

 The output for school leaders is detailed, weekly data on the impact of this structured approach to targeted intervention. During the first six weeks we train four of your teachers in our methodology, having those four trained teachers then coach four more teachers within the second set of six weeks. We provide continued quality assurance and coaching, whilst providing to the leadership team, weekly reports of impact throughout the programme.

Spaces on the programme are limited, with current availability after the October half-term. Follow the link below to download a short presentation on the methodology. You may also email us at for one of our consultants to arrange a call or meeting.
