Applications are invited from teachers and school leaders to facilitate for the new National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) that the Kent Teaching School Hub are offering in partnership with the Ambition Institute.

Using the superb curriculum and training materials provided by the expert Learning Design team at the Ambition Institute our facilitators will work directly with course participants by facilitating training conferences and support clinics.

The role of NPQ facilitator offers an exciting and challenging professional development opportunity for an ambitious teacher and/or school leader who would like to contribute to the wider effectiveness of teaching and school leadership across Kent and the wider region.

“We are delighted that Bennett Memorial Diocesan School has been designated as the Teaching School Hub to work across East and West Kent. This designation from the Department for Education provides the school and its network the opportunity to build further on its work as a Teaching School and at the centre of the Outstanding initial teacher training provider, Teach Kent and Sussex.

As the Kent Teaching School Hub, we are looking forward to working with our partners to build further on the provision of evidence-based teacher training and development for each professional stage. Teachers play a critical role in the success of our pupils, and it is absolutely right that we are committed to offering them excellent training and development, building shared professional expertise based on evidence. The new Teaching School Hubs have an important role to play in this critical work.”

Jon Sparke, Headteacher, Bennett Memorial Diocesan School
