The Laurus Institute is part of the Laurus Trust and provides a comprehensive offer of externally accredited and in-house professional learning opportunities for education professionals at every stage of their career. High quality professional learning and pedagogical development are at the heart of our organisational culture, they are the bedrock of what we do and what we stand for.
From Apprenticeships and Masters degrees to National Professional Qualifications, we invest a considerable amount of time, effort and money in developing staff, governors and trustees across our Laurus Trust schools and partner schools, because we understand that our people are our greatest asset. The Laurus Institute is our way of bringing together all our professional learning under one banner. It allows the innovation and best practice that is happening in each school to be shared centrally.
National Professional Qualifications
Professional learning and development
Pedagogy and curriculum design
Senior staff work across schools and phases to share ideas and practice. We develop subject leads who whilst working in one of the Trust schools have responsibility for subject development across all schools. They focus on subject specific pedagogy and curriculum design to ensure that all schools provide the very best experience and education for the students and pupils within them. Within the Laurus Trust we place high value on subject specialists finding time to collaboratively plan together.
