Your career

From the moment you train with us you are a leader. You are leading young people to discover abilities and potential they scarcely knew they had and opening doors of opportunity and choice.

As you grow as a leader we know the importance of ongoing professional development. That is why we work in close partnership with the Altius Teaching School alliance. We regard your teacher training with us as just the beginning of our support for you as you develop through your teaching career. Train with us and we will invest in you for your career.

Altius offer a full range of professional development support to teachers from the beginning of their careers all the way through to headship (NPQH) and executive leadership (NPQEL)

As a trainee you are entitled to free attendance at any Altius Teaching School seminar or lecture. As a new teacher your employing school is entitled to discounted rates for Altius’ professional development courses.

We work closely with Altius in their development of a number of courses:

  1. Teaching with impact – this course builds on what you learnt during your training year about the characteristics of effective teaching. The course draws upon a wide range of the best research about what makes great teaching.
  2. Aspiring leaders course – this course aims to develop the leadership capacity of teachers in the first five years or their career.
  • Stepping up leadership course – this course prepares teachers looking to move into senior leadership roles within schools.
