Additional Professional Development
At TKAT we understand that one size does not fit all and that high quality professional development should consider individualised context based learning. Our Learning and Development Network can support your CPD lead to develop a personalised professional development plan for the school that can be implemented, sustained and can genuinely enhance student learning outcomes.
In addition to our core offer, we can offer bespoke support in line with your Academy improvement priorities. All of our programmes can be tailored to meet your specific Academy needs, or we can support you to provide bespoke INSET or staff training sessions on a specific theme.
As a large trust we have access to a full range of expertise and can organise school visits to observe best practice in action.
To discuss how we can support your Academy professional development needs please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Supervision is an accountable process which supports, assures and develops the knowledge, skills and values of an individual, group or team; undertaken by suitably trained professionals.
Good supervision can give staff an opportunity to reflect on their practice, explore any worries or concerns they may have about the welfare and development of all children in the setting and contribute towards highly effective practice and increased staff confidence.
We are looking to expand our offer of supervision to groups such as DSLs, SENCOs and Wellbeing leads. In order to support this we are looking for suitable individuals to be trained to lead regular group supervision sessions. This 1 day course split into 2 half day sessions will give supervision leads the understanding and tools to be able to
facilitate regular and effective group supervision to support colleagues who work with our most vulnerable pupils across our #oneTKATfamily.
