My role overseeing career entry puts me in the enviable position of working with and supporting teachers at the very beginning of their professional journeys. As Lead Professional Tutor for Inspiring Leaders Teacher Training, I work with schools across the partnership as they support our trainees, I work with the trainees helping them to hone their practice and I have overview of the course, ensuring we continue to be an outstanding provider. To ensure the NQTs that join our partnership grow and flourish, I work with colleagues to provide a programme in which networking, reflection and sharing of practice are facilitated in structured and focused sessions.
My key areas of responsibility include:
• Vision and strategy for Nottinghamshire SCITT provision
• Oversight of career entry activity, including NQT programme and support
• Professional tutor cohort of trainee teachers
