NPQ & Career Development programmes

We are keen to develop those who are new to the profession and also those further into their careers as teachers.

We have offered various courses including ITP, OTP and NAML.


We also ran NPQML for 3 years through the SSAT with our trained deliverers.

Quotes from our NPQML Cohort:

‘It was useful to reflect on our different priorities and future goals’
‘Making links between my personal vision and the school’s, and discussing what this wuold look like in the classroom’
‘Deeper understanding of effective project management’
‘Talking about approaches and priorities in teaching and learning’
‘Conversations re: progression pathways and identifying development needs’

Cohort 1 have given 100% overall feedback in all the modules as ‘Excellent’.
