Participant quotes

I have thoroughly enjoyed the NQT/RQT programme. It has enabled me to make connections with other schools in the trust which has widened and improved my practice as well as providing valuable contacts with other teachers.

The sessions over the two years have impacted my teaching, the Kubler Ross curve has certainly changed my mindset when things go wrong/not to plan. I’ve also really enjoyed learning about our colleagues’ pathways into leadership.
