Our Schools Programme is a subject-based peer network for subject leaders who wish to to reawaken their love of teaching, strengthen their department and give students a richer subject experience. As a member, you’ll attend a free annual conference and gain access to a network of committed subject leaders.
We support departments to improve their subject provision. This year 87% of our members achieved the PTI Mark for focusing on: coherence and a quality of challenge within the curriculum; extending and enthusing pupils with activities that go beyond the curriculum; development and exploration of teachers' own specialist subject knowledge; and raising the profile of their subject within education.
Teachers are at the heart of what we do. Our programmes are developed and led by practising teachers, ensuring that they are relevant to you.
