Ambition School Leadership & Institute for Teaching comment on education secretary’s £24million for the north east announcement

Oct. 8, 2018

Ambition School Leadership and Institute for Teaching’s North Director, Raksha Pattni, said:

“We welcome the Secretary of State’s decision to invest funding into schools in the North East. 

From our work in the north east we know that there are many talented and committed teachers and school leaders working tirelessly to ensure every child gets a great education, but too many pupils are missing out and unable to realise their potential. 

We particularly welcome the £12 million to be spent on career training for teachers at the early stage of their career. Continued investment in teacher development will help educators to keep getting better, equipping them with the skills, knowledge and support they need to ensure every child can thrive, no matter what their background.”
