Training and Professional Development

Professional Learning

At LEO Academy Trust, we are focused on delivering our vision of Learning Excellence Opportunity through all that we do. We believe that every staff member has the entitlement to benefit from taking part in great learning communities, experiencing high quality professional learning and being exposed to a wide range of growth opportunities.

We are committed to investing in our staff, providing them with the professional learning opportunities they need to thrive in their careers. We recognise that staff at all levels need support, and we offer a variety of opportunities to help them to grow and to learn.

Our professional learning offer includes but is not limited to the following:

  • A suite of training and support for Early Career Teachers (ECTs).

  • Leadership programmes for those taking on new responsibilities.

  • Coaching development programmes for those supporting and guiding colleagues.

  • A system leadership programme which supports the development of an aspirational vision and the skills to balance challenge and support.

  • Network learning community meetings which provide an opportunity for colleagues to collaborate across the trust. 

  • High quality professional learning opportunities in areas that matter to us and to our commitment and ambitions for children and young people, including technology; safeguarding; health and wellbeing; and curriculum development. 

Our LEO professional learning offer has been, and will continue to be, a responsive offer, driven by our trust and the staff within it.
