  • Middle and senior leaders will feel more confident and better prepared to take the ‘next step’ into senior management or headship.

 

 

  • HLTA’s and TA’s will be ready to gain greater understanding of their potential including, if desired, training to be a teacher.

 

  • Career pathways will be created for trainees and new entrants to the profession whilst honing and developing their leadership skills.

 

 

“Schools should support all of their teachers to access CPD by releasing them from lessons and actively promoting a culture of learning within their teaching staff.”
