Training and Development at LEH

LEH offers excellent opportunities for personal and professional development in a caring and supportive environment. New teachers to the school are allocated a mentor at the start of their employment and there is a well- planned Induction process. Staff are encouraged to identify their professional development needs and we offer regular professional INSET and the opportunity to attend external courses and other CPD activities. We fully support our employees’ desire to progress and will look to support where possible and appropriate.

LEH offers financial support to staff through Study Support Scheme because we recognise the benefits of additional external study, most commonly for masters’ degrees or higher. Courses leading to an award of a higher degree or postgraduate qualification at a UK University, College or Further Education Establishment are eligible, as are courses leading to a qualification or an award of corporate membership from a recognised professional organisation. Other study courses would be considered, if they lead to achievement of a qualification recognised as contributing to the School.
