Keren Prior is a qualified secondary school teacher and head of the team at EES for Schools that provides training and development opportunities for the whole of the school workforce. The work of the team covers the whole remit from recruitment support for schools, initial teacher training and early professional development opportunities all the way through to leadership and governor development.
The main priority of a school is to ensure that pupils are given the best possible chance of achieving their potential, both academically and personally. In the ever-changing world of education, it is imperative that teachers and other staff are as up-to-date as they can possibly be in their subject knowledge, teaching practices, and assessment requirements. It also important not to forget the professional development needs of the wider school community, including your governors.
