Continuous Professional Development

 

The school is able to offer comprehensive professional development opportunities for all staff.

All staff at the school have in place a well structured induction programme, tailored for each role.  This programme looks at the role of tutor, the behaviour for learning policy, Child Protection training, academy values and vision and other relevant policies, key to your role.

Our in-house Coordinators team work with all curriculum areas and provide in-house training and development opportunities for all staff.  Our weekly CPD session is delivered as a whole school, or in curriculum areas and is an invaluable opportunity for whole academy development or tailored sessions relevant to curriculum area needs.

All staff benefit from a rigorous performance management system where continuous professional development opportunities are available for staff at all levels.   An annual performance management discussion will provide an opportunity to identify learning needs and agree a programme of professional support.

The school provides flexible and adaptable learning and development opportunities for all staff.  We provide a variety of delivery methods and strive to increase professional skills and practice, as well as the development of future leaders in education.

Professional development is further supported by attending external events, e-learning, networking opportunities or subscribing to professional groups or publications and access to sponsorship for some academic courses.
