In Academies

Our teachers, leaders and support staff have the greatest impact on the futures of our students. Their impact beyond their own academy on the rest of the OAT network is a vital part of its success.

Developing skills
Individual expertise is recognised and academy staff members have the chance to share and develop their ideas to impact the whole network.

Shared resources, policy guidance, discussion forums and support networks make sure that teaching staff always have access to the support they need.

Increased Continuing Professional Development (CPD) opportunities, both accredited and non-accredited, keep staff developing their skills.

The development of leadership skills is encouraged through secondments and encouraging good practitioners to support other academies. OAT has secured spaces on the national Future Leaders programme to give the brightest applicants the opportunity to shine.

Future Leaders
OAT's partnership with Future Leaders has provided spaces on its flagship programme for teaching and senior staff within the network. The Future Leaders mission is to eradicate educational inequality by developing effective and inspirational leaders who have what it takes to transform challenging schools, so that they can offer their pupils a better future.

Applicants who pass the rigorous selection process will become OAT Future Leaders and we hope that they will stay within the network to share their expertise.
OAT is also able to nominate more than 20 participants across the network to take part in Future Leaders’ new Leading Impact programme, which is the National College accredited National Professional Qualification for Senior Leadership (NPSQL).

Leadership is the key to on-going educational success and Future Leaders will help us prepare the next generation of leaders for our academies
