Teaching and Learning

 'Merthyr College embraces the culture and ethos of OLEVI…The impact of your work and the current delegates’ professionalism and enthusiasm for impacting on the learning of their students and colleagues was clearly demonstrated’. (OLEVI Quality Review)

Providing an outstanding learner experience is a strategic priority of the college and Teaching & Learning is fundamental in achieving this. The college wishes to develop a team culture of enquiry and innovation, working together to create effective and innovative approaches to Teaching and Learning. Our Teaching & Learning strategy can be seen below;

The Teaching & Learning Strategy embraces and embeds the OLEVI principles as a means of driving up standards, with improvements in Teaching and Learning leading to improvements in outcomes for learners. Based on the TLC model (Teaching & Learning, Leadership and Coaching) the strategy aims to;

  • grow exceptional practitioners
  • empower practitioners to enhance the leadership of teaching and learning
  • engage staff in a collaborative coaching ethos
  • develop an ‘open door’ approach to sharing best practice
  • provide learners with quality teaching in outstanding learning environments
  • enhance learners’ knowledge and skills that are critical for progression or employment
  • grow a culture of excellence and innovation

The cornerstone of the Teaching & Learning Strategy is the DRICE model. Through the employment of DRICE, teachers should focus on planning and facilitating sessions that are learner-led and achieve the following;

Deepens Thinking and Learning

Role Models the learning process

Impacts on learning and progress

Challenges expectations

Engages learners in their own learning
