We support and nurture our teaching and support staff with excellent development opportunities that will give you the chance to shine. High quality support, training and networking opportunities are available for our entire school workforce.
Our Curriculum and Professional Leadership Services Team aim to match your career goals and aspirations by tailoring opportunities to your individual and school's needs. This is achieved by working collaboratively with schools and organisations in Wandsworth, London and around the country to provide you with excellent personal development opportunities.
Wandsworth offers an excellent induction programme for newly qualified teachers, including the allocation of a personal mentor, reduced timetable and a 7 day programme of talks, seminars and workshops, planned to help you meet the inductions standards. Secondary schools each have their own school based induction programmes. You will also be entitled to 10 per cent Planning, Preparation and Assessment (PPA) time, in addition to a 90 per cent timetable in your first year.
