The PTI’s Subject Leadership Programme is open to all state secondary schools in England. To become members, school departments must demonstrate their commitment to increasing teachers’ subject knowledge, and to furthering their students’ understanding of and enthusiasm for the subject, regardless of their background or ability.
To achieve the PTI Mark, departments have to demonstrate that they have increased the challenge within their subject curriculum, developed their staff’s specialist subject knowledge, developed subject-based links outside school and enthused their pupils through subject-based activities beyond the curriculum.
After three years of Subject Leadership Programme membership, departments may choose to join the Research Programme by devising an advanced multi-year programme in one of these areas. As Research Programme members they will share their growing expertise with others in the Subject Leadership Programme to the benefit of all.
