Professional Development

There is a wide range of meaningful CPD opportunities throughout the year for staff at all stages in their personal professional development at Northgate High School.  Please see the staff CPD programme below for details.

We have formal, long-term programmes for teachers at particular points in their career.  We currently run programmes for trainee teachers, Newly Qualified Teachers (NQTs), Recently Qualified Teachers (RQTs), aspiring Middle Leaders and Senior Leaders and aspiring Headteachers.

There are also less formal Teaching and Learning workshops for everyone all the way through the year.  Teachers sign up for the sessions that interest them and tie in with their own professional interests the most.  These sessions are linked to our Key Teaching and Learning Principles and our School Improvement Plan.

All of these CPD sessions are logged with our online Performance Management programme, BlueSky, automatically so that individuals have a clear record of the CPD that they have taken part in throughout the year.
