SIP+ En. Azudin and SISC+ Miss Mirinda’s joint visit today to the two DTP-AMAN schools on Pulau Tuba focussed on sharing progress at each school during the first half year.
SLT and MLT at each school were updated about the DTP-AMAN PPD- led Transformation(PLT) team from PPD Langkawi before sharing how the school was monitoring 2019 Plan Tactical progress.
Focussing on each school’s Strategic Plan provides a common point for professional dialogue. The role of both SIP+ and SISC+ is to provide support for SLT and MLT to improve their current systems, processes and practices resulting in better student outcomes.
SMK Langkawi collaborate with their DTP-AMAN support team.
Positive interaction between SK Pulau Tuba SLT/MLT and SIP+/SISC+
Different approaches for documenting instructional leadership practices were shared as well as how each school was analysing recent student assessments and planning for next steps. A focus on PBD is currently high priority at both schools with LW and peer coaching followed up by PLC part of the process to support teachers.
Both schools will also be supported to hold dialog prestasi at the school level in July.
While island life might be slower than life in a big city, helping to improve student and school outcomes is still “core business” and #1 priority for the PLT team at PPD Langkawi.
As part of the DTP-AMAN cycle of inquiry, SISC+ met to review Cycle 3 Instructional Leadership implementation progress and plan how they will cascade Cycle 4 Policy Implementation.
There is strong collaboration between the SISC+ who are supporting MLT development in DTP- AMAN and TS25. By connecting these two DT programmes, SISC+ are able to make effective use of processes and modules to ensure MLT are well able to support teachers in their schools.
DTP Programme Manager, Timbalan Hj Kamal bin Hashim, joined the discussion to hear some of the successes and challenges the SISC+ encounter as part of their ongoing work with MLT.
2019 brings fresh opportunities for increasing collaboration between SISC+, SIO (School Improvement Officer) and the eight DTP- AMAN schools.
SISC+ focus is on supporting two DTP-AMAN schools with five ML (Middle Leaders) and five GDB in each school. Each ML will be paired with a GDB and will observe the SISC+ coaching and mentoring their GDB. The ML will continue to support the GDB between SISC+ visits. ML will have a weekly meeting time for PLC, ML CPD, SLT/ ML sharing and planning.
SIO have responsibility for supporting one DTP-AMAN school each and their focus is on improving the SLT ( Senior Leadership Team) capacity to lead school transformation. Building capable leaders of change and leaders of learning requires a positive mindset, commitment to being solutions- focussed, and to regularly reflect on the impact of your actions for teachers and students.
