Teaching and Learning at South Devon College
At South Devon College, our goal is to provide a teaching and learning experience which leads to successful outcomes and progression into further study and employment.
Our Teaching and Learning Vision sets out the following key aspirations:
|Evidence-Informed leaders, staff and students.
|Consistently high standards of teaching, learning and assessment cross college in order to meet the needs of all students and to achieve positive student outcomes.
|Responsive development and improvement based on in-year performance.
|Regular review of curriculum design and development to ensure it has Purpose, Credibility and the Edge.
|A supportive culture underpinned by instructional coaching to promote sustained and personalised teacher development.
To achieve our vision, we continually seek to improve the consistency and quality of teaching and learning across the College through the adoption of principles based on current evidence-informed approaches.
The College’s approach to curriculum intent and design, incorporates 3 principles which ensure that each programme is Purposeful, Credible and with a focus on ‘the Edge’ (PaCE). ‘The Edge’ is what sets our students apart and makes their experience at SDC special. This is achieved by programme design that provides students with significant personal development opportunities, adds value and gives them a competitive edge when applying for work or further study.
