After ten months of project design, research development and leadership experience, the current cohort of RQT Leadership Programme participants have passed the course with flying colours!
The RQT Leadership Programme is designed to support and develop good to outstanding recently qualified teachers towards promotion and leadership within their school. Creating and implementing a leadership project incorporating a core element of action research linked to an area of their School Development Plan, participants aim towards collaboration and reflection between colleagues to maximise the positive impact of their work with students.
Taunton Teaching Alliance were delighted to award RQT Leadership Programme certificates to seven talented primary and secondary teachers who have produced exceptional research-based projects this year, directly leading to the raising of student achievement, improved student (and parent) engagement with the curriculum, as well as increased collaboration and communication between staff and teaching teams.

Assessment: A Consistent Approach
“This course has given the opportunity for more teachers to realise they have a role in the School Development Plan and have it linked to Performance Management for the improvement of our school. Their presentation reflects the CPD; they have approached it as: it has to be beneficial for my school.” Steve Gillan – Headteacher and Course Mentor
