Why invest in developing new teachers’ subject knowledge?

Improve student outcomes – there is strong evidence to support that deep subject knowledge impacts student outcomes.

“The most effective teachers have deep knowledge of the subjects they teach” The Sutton Trust, 2014

Inspire effective teaching – high-quality CPD for teachers has a significant effect on pupils’ learning outcomes. 

“There is good evidence that high-quality professional development (CPD) for teachers can significantly improve pupils’ attainment.” Education Policy Institute, 2020

Tried & tested CPD – now entering their 9th year, New Teacher Subject Days have consistently achieved fantastic feedback from participants and their schools. 

“Our NQT has been able to reflect on different approaches to teaching and learning, which has fed into her practice. She shares ideas and resources from the course, and has had an injection of enthusiasm that is felt by the whole team.” Head of Department
