It aims for school's to raise aspiration and student enjoyment through 'aspirational subject leadership, curriculum development and extracurricular enrichment.'

She said: "The professional connections I have made and time spent in subject leadership meetings during my time working with the PTI have been invaluable with the knock-on benefits to my own colleagues and students in my academy being vital.

"Working through the last 18 months of a pandemic has been made more engaging and uplifting through the collaboration events the PTI has offered”.
