National Lead Practitioners
As part of our strategy and innovation for school improvements, the trust offers our educationalists the opportunity to become National Lead Practitioners (NLPs) for their specialisms. NLPs are highly effective teachers and leaders who are released from their own academy for 1.5 days a week to design, innovate and enrich the Oasis Curriculum. They work hard to promote best practice in all academies across the trust and are seen as experts in their field.
It's the role of an NLP to contribute towards our knowledge-rich curriculum, helping us to remain at the cutting edge of national and international developments in teaching. They use their time to research and evaluate innovative practice, drawing on research outcomes and sharing this knowledge across the trust.
Our NLPs are line managed by National Curriculum Leads, all feeding into our National Leads for Curriculum, Pedagogy & Behaviour, and National Directors.
There is the opportunity for multiple NLPs within subject specialisms across the country, incorporating fresh and new ideas from across the group. Through the existence of the NLPs we can build a better curriculum, and a better life for our teaching staff and students.
