Teaching approach

Learning the Bell Way.

At Bell, education is at the heart of everything we do.

Our experts and an Emeritus Professor from the University of Cambridge developed The Bell Way, our unique teaching approach. The six principles below are core to everything we do and will ensure your success.

High expectations

Make outstanding the norm

Bell trainers create high expectations and engagement. We challenge each teacher we teach to perform beyond their expectations, enabling them to excel. We expect our teachers and trainers to be the best in their field. We provide regular feedback and development opportunities, so they can keep on learning.

Clarity of learning

Sharing clear learning aims and outcomes

Bell trainers have clear, consistent learning goals and teaching methods. We make the aims of each session and activity clear in a way that inspires and engages teachers, and measure progress against these aims. We monitor quality through our own standardised, teaching observation system, designed by Bell’s team of experts and praised by educational inspectors.

Unique individual 

Adapting learning to each individual 

Bell trainers find out about each teacher’s ambitions and capability, and build from there. We are experts in working with teachers of different needs and cultures and offer different levels of challenge to each, based on their needs, goals and context.

Assessment as learning

Using feedback to improve teaching and learning

Bell trainers use assessment and feedback to help teachers develop their individual skills. We help teachers assess their own work and show them what they have to do to take their teaching to the next level. Reflection by teachers on their own practice is a key component of all our teacher training programmes.

Organisational learning

Believing in the importance of education

Bell teacher trainers continuously refresh and renew their professional skills to support effective learning and teaching.

Learning everywhere

Helping teachers to learn everywhere

Bell trainers maximise formal and informal learning opportunities. We help teachers develop their skills through the use of a well-stocked preparation room, learning technology and regular self-study assignments.
