Insights into Leadership

At Thamesmead SCITT, we recognise that there are many trainees, who, even at this early stage of the teaching career, may be interested in finding out more about what it means to be a school leader.

Our 'Insiights Into Leadership Programme' is a certificated, bespoke programme which is designed and delivered to enable trainees to gain some experience into either pastoral, curriculum or Senior Leadership Team roles in order to support them to make informed choices as they move through their career. 


Many of our trainees move on to leadership roles in partner schools and beyond; here are just a few:

Sophie Franklin - 2020 - Head of Drama - The Bishop Wand C of E School

Dhru Patel - 2018 - Head of House - Bishop David Brown School

Alexa Innes - 2017 - Head of MFL - Highcrest Academy

Faye Willans - 2014 - Curriculum Lead, English - Thamesmead School

Angelina Daniel - 2011 - Assistant Headteacher, Teaching and Learning - St Paul's Catholic College

Alex Leyland - 2009 - Head of PE - The Bishop Wand C of E School


In 2014, Ofsted noted that,


"Trainees often find teaching jobs within the partnership, and many move quickly into positions of additional responsibility and leadership."
