Beaumont School in St Albans has been selected to deliver a prestigious teacher programme which will support the delivery of Chartered College of Teaching’s Chartered Teaching Programme.
The school will be one of only 11 providers to support the delivery of the programme, which celebrates the excellent teaching occurring in classrooms every single day.
The school will be in partnership with Sir John Lawes Schools in Harpenden and both will play a crucial role with teachers across Hertfordshire and surround areas to achieve Chartered Teacher Status with the launch of the next cohort in April.
The 15-month programme will be based at the Beaumont school in St Albans and is open to teachers with at least three years of experience who have shown their work to be at a high level with strong commitment to professional development.
Martin Atkinson, Headteacher of Beaumont School, said: “We are delighted the school is working on this exciting new project in collaboration with the Chartered College.
“Most importantly, the Chartered Teacher Programme will enable dedicated local teachers to develop their practice and to do an even better job of providing excellent education for the young people of our region.”
Catt Scutt, Director of Education and Research at the Chartered College of Teaching said: “Moving to this new approach for the delivery of our Chartered Teacher programme is a really exciting step for the Chartered College of Teaching.
“We are looking forward to working with both schools and making use of their local expertise to offer tailored support and development opportunities.”
