Our Continuous Professional Learning

Our ‘Inclusion’ value means that we’re dedicated to the development of all colleagues: those who work in classrooms and those who work in the many different roles across Archway. We’re committed to ensuring that every colleague has the opportunity to grow and thrive professionally.

We have many professional learning opportunities open to colleagues,  including:

  • Apprenticeship Opportunities, working with our partners LMP– open for all staff in a variety of roles and levels of leadership.
  • Bluecoat SCITT – School Centred Initial Teacher Training
  • Archway ECT Training (Year 1 and 2), working with our Delivery Partners Spencer TSA and Education Development Trust
  • National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) working with our delivery partners Windsor Academies Trust and Teacher Development Trust. We offer exclusive Archway cohorts of NPQs in Leading Teaching, Leading Teacher Development, Leading Behaviour and Culture, Leading Literacy, Senior Leadership. Colleagues have also undertaken NPQH and NPQEL
  • Bespoke Archway Middle and Senior Leader Development Programmes
  • Principal Development Group
  • Designated Safeguarding Lead training and network

We encourage membership and engagement with national organisations to improve and enhance our expertise, such as the CST and ASCL, and working alongside schools and Trusts with whom we share priorities and expertise.

Our classroom colleagues benefit from routine and regular training in effective teaching and pedagogy, including:

  • Our flagship weekly CPL Programme – all teachers and teaching assistants engage in a highly developed programme to enhance their skills and expertise in the classroom
  • Instructional Coaching, with our delivery partners Steplab – all teachers have an Instructional Coach and engage in fortnightly development cycles to improve their practice in precise, measurable steps.
  • Weekly T&L briefings and bulletins, sharing ideas, messages and instruction to enhance the quality of education.
  • Regular cross-trust network meetings, so subject specialists can meet together and share curriculum plans and resources.

Our PDR Cycle

Our Performance Development Review (PDR) Cycle includes all colleagues across our trust, and every colleague understands that their role directly contributes to the learning, development, safety and wellbeing of our students.

We believe that every colleague should have access to high quality development and support. PDRs enable colleagues to agree focused, values-based objectives to maximise their impact and consider opportunities to continually learn and develop their practice.
