Co-teaching agreements - a deep dive


Co-teaching agreements are extremely useful tools for improving collaborative practice in teaching teams. Co-teaching agreements are documents that teachers create together. They set out clear expectations and protocols for co-planning, co-teaching, co-debriefing and co-reflecting.

In this course, school leaders will engage in narrow and deep learning about the importance of co-teaching agreements. They will explore the role of co-teaching agreements in developing collaborative professionalism and creating cohesion in schools.

This course is ideal for school leaders or teachers who are leading collaborative teaching practice in existing, refurbished and new schools.

Enrolment in public sessions is open to teams of school leaders, by application. Please contact SLEC at for information on how to enrol.
