The CLASS (Classroom Assessment Scoring System) Observation Training program enables participants to develop capacity and confidence in providing feedback on teacher practice to improve children’s learning and development outcomes.

CLASS is an observation tool designed to assess classroom quality, which was developed by the University of Virginia’s Curry School Center for Advanced Study of Teaching and Learning. The program involves trained assessors observing teacher-child interactions and providing feedback to help new and experienced teachers become more effective.

MGSE is an authorised trainer in CLASS in Australia across Toddler, Pre-K and K-3 levels.

The program also helps educational leaders and teachers to lead and develop other educators in their settings.
