Deele College is a participant in the Instructional Leadership Programme, initiated in the post primary sector in Ireland by the ETBI.

Instructional Leadership strategies place an emphasis on group work and cooperative learning. It aims to create a positive learning environment through the use of numerous strategies, skills and tactics such as;

  • think-pair-share,
  • mind maps,
  • graphic organisers
  • And many more

Cross curricular learning is encouraged and the critical skills of independent learning and problem solving are encouraged. It focuses on the link between school self-evaluation and school improvement and primarily focuses on an action plan to enhance teaching and learning.

It is envisaged that these instructional methods, skills and tactics will eventually become common place in the repertoire of all professional teachers. It is expected that these teaching methods will help to make the learning experience a more enjoyable and successful one for our students.
