Learning so many new things and being able to see them translate into day to day practice through the apprenticeship tasks.
The podcast and book club sessions gives me some kind of normality. I also enjoy the workshop sessions too.
The space,, chance and focus on learning beyond my comfort zone.
Take the leap! I’m on the @WomenEd cohort with @TheNCE_ and the support, comradery and learning is superb. Got an awesome tutor in @RachelONorth too and the backing and support of @ViviennePorritt - what more could you ask for! #masters #schoolleadership 💜
