Teacher Testimonial: What I really felt here more than anywhere else was that the welcome was extremely warm and the team wanted to develop me and nurture me as a leader, a professional and a teacher. They have given me the opportunity to go on to the national leadership course, which allowed me to nurture my own leadership skills and learn a whole host of different things, which I had not had the opportunity to learn before. After 4 years, I was seconded onto the SLT team looking after Teaching and Learning, which has always been my real passion. In September this year, I was seconded to be the Associate Vice Principal which added another layer which challenged me and helped me experience lots of other aspects at the school. At Stockwood, we really believed the CPD should be personalised at whatever level you are at and whatever level you come into the Academy. If you are an NQT or Unqualified, we really nurture the talent you have and we will help you gain QTS and complete your NQT year. We have also put together a rolling CPD programme every Thursday night so that people are really supported. We believe that nurturing talent upwards is really important, whether that's pastoral care, curriculum care, teaching and learning and then moving into SLT. We have middle leader and senior leaders’ courses and send people out on National Accreditation. Stockwood Park Academy have really helped me develop my skills and I'm very lucky that I have a team of people that I know I can develop myself and still do my day to day job.
