Training and CPD

At the heart of TMET is a commitment to provide pupils with access to a world-class education, schools with excellent school-to-school support, and staff with high quality professional development.

To help us fulfil that commitment, in 2022 we launched The Mead Institute, which brings together our SCITT (school-centred initial teacher training), our Teaching School Hub, and all other training and professional development we offer, for example training for governors, trustees and clerks.
