Professional Development for Teachers.

The John Taylor SCITT is part of JT MAT, The John Taylor Teaching School Hub and The Staffordshire Research School and so is equally concerned with Teacher Development as with Teacher Training. We want to recruit and retain good teachers and so invest considerably in professional development. As a MAT employee you would have the opportunity to collaborate with your counterpart in each of the MAT secondary schools. In addition our Career Development Pathway for teachers and leaders clearly outlines entitlement and opportunities available.
