“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 valuable. Emma Hollis (NASBTT Executive Director) is in a great position to champion our cause in political and policy circles. Overall, I feel welcomed and valued as a member. NASBTT makes a difference to a lot of staff.”

Joanne Clipsham, Sharing Excellence Partnership
