BWT Primary Training Hub

We are excited to be launching the Brooke Weston Trust Primary Training Hub which aims to provide high quality professional development for primary colleagues engaged in a wide variety of roles across our local area.

This comprehensive programme has been developed in response to the development needs of the primary schools across the Brooke Weston Trust but many other schools may have similar development priorities, so we are inviting all schools in our local area to be part of this exciting initiative. 

Jane MacDonald, Principal at Gretton Primary Academy and Carrie Norman, Principal at Peckover Primary School, who are both Local Leaders of Education (LLEs), have developed this programme which offers a wide range of support, training and development for staff in all roles and at all career stages to support school improvement.

Training will be led by experienced leaders across our Trust and enriched by regional and nationally recognised educationalists including subject association leads, Lead Ofsted inspectors plus external consultants including the inspirational Anna Ephgrave.

The sessions will take place in Corby at either Brooke Weston Trust teaching school or Beanfield Primary School depending on numbers.

We hope that you will find the content of our courses valuable and look forward to meeting you at a future training session.

The Primary Training Hub team

I have been the Principal at Gretton Primary Academy for the last six years, and am proud to be part of the Brooke Weston Trust. As well as leading my school, I am a facilitator on an Aspirant Middle Leader course which aims to develop teachers who aspire to take on a middle leadership role. I am also the Chair of the Brooke Weston Trust Leadership Academy Board which has designed a programme of professional development opportunities to upskill leaders of the future within our Trust. This work dovetails well with my role in the development of the Primary Training Hub which I am extremely excited to be working on.

Jane MacDonald

I have been Principal of Peckover Primary school for eight years, and have been proud to lead the school to success in an area with a challenging context. (Wisbech is designated as a Government Opportunity Area). 

Prior to becoming a Principal, I was a leading teacher for EAL and mathematics in Cambridgeshire.

High quality CPD is the key to nurturing a skilled and confident staff; therefore I am excited to be involved in the launch and conception of the Brooke Weston Trust Primary Training Hub.
