Recently Qualified Teachers

We have developed a bespoke and strategic training programme for teachers in the early stages of their teaching career or returning to the classroom after a period of absence. The sessions explore the fundamental aspects of the teaching standards and combine theoretical understanding with practical activities, useful resources and adaptable methodology for all subject areas. Later sessions in the year introduce data analysis and offer advice and support for career progression and professional development. We include multiple opportunities for the attendees to discuss their practice and share ideas in a supportive environment. Our aim is to encourage reflection, facilitate professional growth and improve outcomes for all.
