How does NAU 2.0 support professional development?
We continually refresh NAU so that the content is always relevant and beneficial to the changing nature of modern teaching. From new ways to approaching a subject, to upskilling our teachers in the advanced digital technology they use for remote teaching, our courses centre on the rounded skill sets required for delivering excellence in education.
Our professional development courses equip our teachers for any scenario. Currently, for example, many of our students, parents and teachers are facing new challenges due to the unpredictable events of this year. Essential school closures have prioritised the health and safety of our students and resulted in many continuing their education with the Virtual School Experience. Through NAU 2.0 we have provided every teacher with thorough training in remote teaching. Like many of our NAU courses, Remote Teaching is delivered by our Teaching Fellows, senior members of the Nord Anglia family who have demonstrated outstanding practice and expertise in the area, as well as the highest quality external trainers.
We also offer or partner with a number of course providers to give our teachers access to as much variety of training as possible. For example, we have recently introduced LinkedIn Learning to the platform. This opens up over 16,000 courses to our teachers and gives them the freedom to truly tailor their professional development to their own needs and interests. Soon also to launch is the language learning tool Rosetta Stone. This will give all of our teachers the chance to learn a foreign language and upskill the languages they already speak.
