We believe in supporting our colleagues to advance in their careers and enhance their skills. Our program for professional and leadership development offers numerous opportunities to all our staff, including those who have just begun their teaching careers.

We held our second early career teacher (ECT) conference of the year on Monday in partnership with Cabot Learning Federation.  More than 25 colleagues from our primary and secondary schools discovered how to use adaptive teaching to support pupil learning.  Topics covered meaningful formative assessment, teaching strategies and action planning.

Later in the school year, our ECTs will participate in a number of clinics to further develop their skills.  We are also running a parallel programme of conferences and clinics for mentors.
