Congratulations to Brooke Weston French teacher, Alexie Pasdoit and History teacher Lewis Holdcroft, who have both been accepted onto the prestigious Leadership Legacy Project run by SSAT, the Schools, Students and Teachers network.
They will be part of an impressive group of future education leaders from across the country designated as SSAT Leadership Fellows. Successful Leadership Fellows are all in their first 2-5 years of teaching and have been selected by the Principal as already showing the potential to become outstanding school leaders. Involvement in the programme demonstrates commitment by Brooke Weston Academy and SSAT to developing the next generation of system leaders. Teachers who are accepted onto the Leadership Legacy Project achieve increased leadership responsibilities at an early career stage, through exposure to a wide range of knowledge and information and the activities undertaken have an impact at classroom and whole school level.
Alexie, who started her career at Brooke Weston as a foreign language assistant before becoming a teacher of French said, ‘I was pleased to be accepted as I am now settling into my fourth year of teaching and I hope to take on departmental or school-wide responsibility. I look forward to the chance to collaborate and interact with other practitioners which will enable me to learn a new approach to teaching and learning from a leadership perspective. I am hoping to further broaden my knowledge and understanding of how to effectively embed research into my classroom practice.’
Lewis, who is in his fifth year of teaching at Brooke Weston, said, ‘It was exciting to hear that I had been accepted as I have heard from the previous year’s cohorts about the impact this course will have. I’m looking forward to hearing insights into professional behaviours and motivation from the exceptional leaders who are giving keynote talks.’
