Saffron TS Hub's new cohort of specialist leaders take part in their NPQ induction programme

Saffron Teaching School Hub is very proud of the rapid growth of our specialist NPQs over the last few years. We were delighted to welcome so many teachers and leaders to their NPQ induction this week at Harlow Study Centre for the NPQBC, NPQLL, NPQLTD and NPQLT programmes. Meeting in person at the start of the course before working online is always beneficial, giving programme members a chance to network with their colleagues and to express what they want to get out of the programme.

We have seen from previous cohorts how these bonds with fellow programme members have flourished, with WhatsApp groups sharing ideas and colleagues visiting each others' schools and asking for feedback on their development planning. We hope this cohort has the same opportunities to work with like-minded colleagues. 

We have also been impressed by the number of teachers and leaders who have shared case studies with us on how they have used their NPQ learning to support their role and other colleagues in their schools and how many have secured new leadership positions since undertaking the NPQ.

It was also lovely to see those who have previously completed their NPQ returning to facilitate NPQs for us - we thank our facilitators for their commitment and kindness. 

We wish this cohort of specialist programme members well and are excited to be working with them on their NPQ programme.

We are also excited about the new NPQ in Leading Primary Maths which will be starting in February 2024.
