As part of the Aquinas Trust we are pleased to be able to offer employees a number of very attractive continued professional learning (CPL) opportunities. The ACE - Teach and the ACE-Lead courses for teaching members of staff come highly rated by those who have enjoyed these opportunities. They offer high quality training including coaching and a chance to learn from other colleagues across the trust at similar career stages or those who have recently developed their career within the trust. Many recent delegates have progressed to secure promoted posts within the trust following their first or second year of employment with us. This type of training also offers a fascinating insight and collaboration cross-phase between secondary and primary teachers with colleagues benefiting from seeing outstanding practice in action to inform the very best practice in our schools.
Those newly qualified (NQT) or recently qualified (RQT) teachers benefit from our Senior Mentor within school who is able to share best practice through mentoring and offer in-school coaches both within subject areas and from our skilled and dedicated cross-subject associate mentors. These dedicated and determined members of staff provide high quality support in the early years of our new teachers' careers.
Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
