Talent Pathways

At the core of all our professional learning is a belief in peer-support, evidence-based innovation, high aspirations for all learners, and timely and contextual relevance to the changing educational landscape.

Drawing on specialisms within our member alliances, the Talent network offers a model for the professional development of teachers from trainee to headship. Our Professional Learning Pathways provide a holistic view of the pedagogical and leadership development needs of a new entrant to the profession. We wholeheartedly share the evidence-based recommendations of CUREE that great professional learning for teachers is characterised as being

  • Focused on improving and evaluating pupil outcomes
  • Underpinned by robust evidence and expertise
  • Driven by collaboration and expert challenge
  • Planned and sustained over time
  • Prioritised by school leadership

Our CPD offer is based on what our partner schools tell us they need, and on national and regional priorities. We have responded to the DfE’s New Standardised CPD and we are proud of our great track record.
