Making the best of you

We want RQTs to feel supported throughout their teaching career and become confident and outstanding teachers along with inspiring and preparing them for leadership . That is why we have designed a programme aimed at RQTs that is relevant, up-to-date; designed and delivered by outstanding practitioners enabling RQTs to reflect on their development as aspiring leaders.

The programme has two overarching principles:

  • to enable RQTs to embed excellence in their own teaching and learning and
  • to provide opportunities for RQTs to develop leadership competencies that relate to curriculum leadership and leading teams, creating a leadership pathway into NCTL NPQ Middle Leadership Qualification.

Assessed requirements of the programme

It is anticipated that participants will complete a learning log and portfolio of evidence demonstrating how they have developed their teaching and leadership competencies based on an emergent NPQ Middle Leadership assessed framework. This will relate
directly to a school improvement priority and reflect their own personal targets for development. To support participants with this a teaching and learning diagnostic questionnaire has been devised to enable RQTs to develop these leadership competencies and become more proficient reflective practitioners and leaders.
