"The NASBTT voice is tremendously important. As a Teaching School we get our voice heard at a regional level, but to be represented by the national body of SCITTs and School Direct Lead Schools is incredibly valued. I feel welcomed and valued as a member. NASBTT makes a difference to a lot of staff."

Joanne Clipsham, Sharing Excellence Partnership 


“NASBTT is always very open, honest and approachable. It helps to bring people together and membership helps us keep on top of things and share best practice – it’s very good value for money.”
