We have strong professional relationships across the alliance, based on mutual trust and respect. Ours is an aspirational vision for the outcomes of all our children and young people, underpinned by shared responsibility and ownership. Our CPD and leadership development programmes are delivered by outstanding practitioners across our alliance.
Our priority is to identify alliance-wide requirements, whilst at the same time being responsive to the needs of individual schools. We intend to celebrate best practice in a largely rural part of the country that does not currently have a national profile. We aim to ensure similar level of CPD entitlement to all wider staff across the alliance - teaching assistants, governors, all support staff and technical teams.
We aim to provide an on-going programme of opportunities with minimum disruption to classroom delivery, informed by identified priorities and building on existing practice, to include:
- twilight courses
- day conferences
- a variety of leadership development programmes, matched to career/experience profile of staff and offering blended learning, on-line and face-to-face.
- leadership development placements, both within and between schools e.g targeted internships, job-swaps, work experience
Working with the Faculty of Education, we aim to increase the number of teachers studying for Masters degrees and to support and deliver a range of accredited NCTL programmes.
