CPD teacher programme
At The Castle School, new teachers follow the Early Career Framework and are supported with a mentor, with additional free time given to undertake their training. We have a coaching programme with peer coaches trained to support colleagues.
We run a varied programme of CPD - some whole school (eg safeguarding), some based in the faculty, or in pastoral teams, and some with our Trust colleagues; there is a growing commitment to working with colleagues across the Trust to develop and share best practice in our curriculum planning and teaching.
There is a strong Leadership Group that consists of middle and senior leaders, and we always welcome aspiring leaders to join this group to support their professional development.
For further development we have an RQT (recently qualified teachers) and aspiring and new middle leaders training across the Trust. We also have colleagues following the new NPQ qualifications and we support this with funding, and with time, as an investment in our colleagues.
