SSAT Lead Practitioners 2017

SSAT is pleased and proud to announce the successful accreditation of our 2017 Lead Practitioners.

Each of these individuals has demonstrated their ability to lead others in and across their school in their chosen areas of expertise, including the Global Learning Programme, and have been awarded the status of SSAT Lead Practitioner.

Don’t take our word for it, watch the video below and hear from support staff, teachers and senior leaders of schools who have had great success with Lead Practitioner Accreditation.

This year’s cohorts included colleagues from all phases across England and Wales, and also featured those who have taken part through a Lead Practitioner programme coordinated by their teaching school alliance. We look forward to sharing their stories with you throughout the year ahead.
