Peer Review Format - Conductors Version
The system of peer review for Conductors at Rainbow House has been put in place for 2 key reasons:
- To ensure continued professional development for all conductors
- To ensure excellent standards of Conductive Education provision
Peer review is theevaluation of scientific, academic, or professional work by others working in the same field.
Peer review methods are employed to maintain and improve standards of quality and performance.
As such the Conductor Peer Review allows us to internally evaluate the work of ourselves and our colleagues in order to maintain and improve our work both individually and as an organisation.
The system of peer review is based around consideration of 13 areas of work that are considered as key methodological and professional skills required of a conductor. These areas are as follows
- Conductor-Child/Adult Relationship & Knowledge of Individuals
- Conductor-Parent/Family/Carer Relationship
- The Group
- The Programme / Daily routine / Time management
- The Task Series
- Rhythmical Intention
- Use of Observation
- The Learning Environment
- Planning and Preparation
- Communication with Colleagues, Ability to Direct and Allocate Facilitators,
The rating system is based on a 1-5 grading. This is in line with the current peer-review guidance from the EYFS. There is also a section to allow for observations & comments
- - RARELY
- - OCCASSIONALLY
- - USUALLY
- - ALWAYS
- - NATURALLY and CONTINUALLY
