Staff Training Elmarie Potgieter 8 January 2015

1 The Trust School Programme is a transformational programme which aims to provide equitable access to excellent education for all Malaysian children and enhances school excellence through raising standards of existing school leadership, learning and teaching practices as well as the implementation of a wide range of curricular and co-curricular programmes. (Potgieter, Johnston and Lee, 2014)

2 The Trust School Standards Document
Standards and Practices document provides a framework which is both explicit and transparent for all schools so that there is no confusion about the requirements at each stage. The framework acts in a number of ways to drive and support school improvement, for example by: raising expectations through criteria and grade descriptors that illustrate the standards of performance and effectiveness expected of schools, offering a sharp challenge and the impetus to act where improvement is needed, clearly identifying strengths and weaknesses and by promoting rigour in the way that schools evaluate their own performance, thereby enhancing their capacity to improve.

3 Trust School Vision ‘The vision for Trust Schools is to transform schools in Malaysia into beacons of excellence for all public schools where the unique learning needs of each student is met in order to maximise their potential and to equip them with the necessary competencies, knowledge and understanding needed to be successful as a Malaysian citizen living in the 21st century.’ (Potgieter, Johnston and Lee, 2014)

7 Programme Standards The Programme Standards Document provides a framework for the implementation of the Trust School programme It ensures quality and sustainability in the implementation of the programme The programme standards are derived from the four strategic goals Standard indicators have been identified within each standard, and are represented in the Programme Performance matrix. The Programme Standard Indicators inform the setting of Key Performance Targets outlined in the approved Designated Instrument (DI) with defined targets for School and Student progress.

12 Programme Performance Matrix
4 Programme Standards 5 Performance Levels: 5 – Model TS 4 – Accredited TS 3 – Foundation 3 2 – Foundation 2 1 – Foundation 1 85 criteria across 20 indicators for Accreditation Indicators

13 Accreditation In order for a school to become an Accredited Trust School it has to demonstrate the successful achievement of ALL performance descriptors under 20 indicators across four Programme Standards at level 4. Once a school reaches this level, it is deemed to be equipped with the necessary skill sets and related systems to allow it to maintain its accreditation status and to continually improve towards becoming a Model Trust School.

14 KPT Process Four Programme Standards with related Programme Indicators and Descriptors Operationalised through KPTs set in Year 1 of the programme to be achieved in Year 5 Targets for School and Students are expressed in the Designated Instrument (DI) Student Targets are Mostly Academic Performance targets, influenced by performance in the National Exams (UPSR and SPM), as well as LINUS (for Grade 1-3), with additional targets set for High Performing Schools. School targets are aligned with Programme Standard Indicators and criteria at 5 Programme Levels in the Programme Standards Performance Matrix

15 Progress Mapping Chart

16 Progress Mapping Chart
The Progress Mapping Chart is used to guide Education Leads and other stakeholders in pinpointing, with a good degree of accuracy, the progress of their schools against the Key Performance Targets. Progress against the Key Performance Targets is measured quarterly, against the Progress Mapping Chart. Revision of these documents will be done in accordance to a process determined in the Working Guidelines Document. The Progress Mapping Chart is based on a formula that provides key progress targets over a period of 5 years. This is then used to determine whether a school is ahead of schedule, on track, below target and thus needing remedial or interventional strategy or at risk of not achieving the outcome.

17 Accreditation in Five Years
The Trust Schools Programme accommodates schools with different starting points. The programme incorporates a differentiated support mechanism which gives additional support for schools that need it during their five-year journey towards accreditation. There is a minimum expectation that all schools, regardless of their starting point, will achieve accreditation level, and if at a higher starting point, will progress at least two levels to Model School Standard. A school deemed to be at foundation level at the start of the programme should reach Accreditation Level by the end of the five years programme.
