Continuous Professional Development
We offer unique and bespoke training for staff at all levels. This includes a full development programme for teaching and non-teaching staff, coaching and mentoring, Polishing Pedagogy for developing highly effective teachers, and Aspirations Academies Trust Incubator programmes for aspiring Senior Leaders and aspiring Principals. In addition, we offer a full programme of CPD and support for NQTs and those on the Teach First programme, including a weekly mentor meeting and regular coaching. Staff will be supported to develop a positive orientation to professional learning as reflective practitioners and will be empowered to take ownership and responsibility for their professional learning and development.
We strive to embed the voice of students (for example, through My Voice, iKnow My Class Surveys and student voice and leadership developments) and the active engagement of students in the process of CPD and staff professional learning.
