Learn effective differentiation for learning to enable all students to progress

Every student is different, entering classrooms with varying ideas and understanding. This course will help you improve your understanding and use of differentiating for learning for both primary and secondary education.

You will explore the key principles of effective differentiation for learning, see how teachers use these approaches in their classrooms, and learn how to differentiate for learning by task. Real classroom footage and examples are provided from science and maths lessons.

You will leave the course feeling confident in your ability to respond to evidence of your students’ learning and address their different needs.

This course is for teachers, curriculum leaders, newly qualified teachers, trainee teachers and others involved in teaching primary, secondary or further education (ages 5-19 years).

Examples are provided from science and mathematics to contextualise key concepts, however teachers of other disciplines will find the course useful to extend their thinking about how to support all learners they teach.
