Professional Development

At DJM we provide opportunities for our teachers to present their classroom practices in our Professional Development activities. We believe it is the teacher who knows best about what happens in a classroom and as such each has a wealth of knowledge and experience to share.

Our teachers share their classroom practices with each other through our:

  • workshops & courses – Behaviour Management, Literacy, Programming, Assessment & reporting; Thinkers Keys, De Bono’s 6 Hats .  
  • Swap meets – swapping formats, ideas & strategies. 
  • Resources to copy & share

Our professional development events are practical, relevant and fun. 

Briony DJM teacher in London says:

” Working for DJM is great! They are always available for a chat & are very supportive. Their professional development sessions are great too & always held in a ‘surprise’ venue such as a Health club, or great restaurant or top floor of a pub! They always provide us with food & drink during the workshops. They are a professional team with a friendly approach to teaching. They are always looking after us!”
