Teacher CPD


Shuttle Dialogue for Secondary Schools 2020-21

Specific resources for teachers to deliver the  five sessions in the Secondary Linking Programme- Shuttle Dialogue for Secondary Schools.

It is virtual and can be between classes in different schools or classes within a school.

Students thoughts and ideas are exchanged between sessions.



You’ll  find our online Teacher Guide to Shuttle Dialogue Linking here Teacher Guide.(word doc)

This takes you through all five planned sessions and has planning documents as well as giving background theory and context, and includes planning forms for pairs of linking teachers in training.




We’ve made a short film which provides an overview of  the new Shuttle Dialogue Linking for Secondary Schools and what the programme involves.  Click here to view.




We’ve made a brief Dialogue module which provides you with some context for the role that dialogue plays in linking and your role as a teacher. It’s a presentation with audio you can download and listen to. Click here to view.
