Opportunities within the Trust

Whole Teaching Staff Development:

All academies within AbbeyMAT are committed to giving all of our students outstanding teaching and learning experiences and we believe this is achieved through an effective professional development package.

As an academy trust we define effective professional development as structured professional learning that results in changes in teacher practices and improvements in student learning outcomes.

To achieve this we utilise our Lead Practitioners and other outstanding practitioners from across the Trust to ensure all academies and staff receive world class training to develop their pedagogy.

Newly Qualified Teacher Support Programme:

Newly qualified staff within all academies within Abbey MAT will complete a tailored programme of professional development to allow them to adapt to the demands of the teaching profession so they can thrive and embrace the rewards teaching brings.

Recently Qualified Teacher Support Programme:

All RQT staff will be attached to a coach who will be an experienced member of staff with a proven track record of being an effective member of staff.
