Continuous Professional Development
The Aquinas Church of England Education Trust recognises that continuous professional development of its employees is essential in helping all its academies achieve greater effectiveness. The Trust believes that we all learn more effectively if we have high expectations and high levels of self-confidence and motivation, and that creating a purposeful learning environment enables this.
The Trust’s staff body represents its most valuable resource and although professional development will almost always be intrinsically linked to the Trust Action Plan of the Trust and the Academy Improvement Plan of each academy and the appraisal process, sensitivity to the specific needs of an individual will be encouraged. The Trust is committed to provide coherent and progressive opportunities for staff to develop professionally and personally to both improve standards and raise morale at a variety of levels – individual, team and whole academy. It’s 5 Year Career Plan delivers NQT support (via Bromley School’s Collegiate); NQTPlus (for teaching staff in their second year of teaching); AquinasTeach; AquinasLead and the PrADAH (Preparation for Aspiring Deputies and Assistant Heads) programme.
