The NAPTA scheme has been a useful tool as it has provided me with the resources needed to help with my professional development, thereby assisting me to realise my true potential. It has helped make my role more interesting by giving me a greater understanding of what is expected of me, as well as bringing up opportunities to broaden my knowledge. It has also highlighted areas I need to develop and pointed out my strengths, which has helped me to self-evaluate and given me confidence in my abilities.
The Development Resources available have helped with lesson planning and have pointed out opportunities that are available to improve career prospects and experience.
Doing this as a team throughout the school has been a positive experience as it has encouraged us to help and support each other.
