The most valuable resource in our schools is our workforce. They provide the knowledge, skills and expertise to ensure that children and young people achieve their potential and become fully rounded citizens of the future, living their faith.
This area is a key theme in the Archdiocesan Strategic Plan and has the following key priorities:
- The development of a strong core of school and college leaders with the capacity to support others schools
- Continuous professional development from NQT through middle leadership to senior leadership
- Talent management and succession planning
- Access to and participation in research and development
- Initial teacher training which meets the needs of our schools
Newly qualified teachers are an important part of the workforce within our Catholic community, and you are welcomed fully into the Archdiocese. The first year of teaching is usually a mixture of excitement, challenge and often exhaustion as you gain a full working knowledge of the role. Teaching is a rewarding career, and your role as educator is extremely important. We recognise that this first year can be demanding, and, therefore, as a newly qualified teacher, you will have access to focussed support during your first year of teaching to enable you to develop your role within a Catholic school.
