Secondary teacher and head of department

Natalie Kesterton is a secondary teacher of 7 years experience and 3 years experience as head of department at the time of application. In that time she has worked across 3 different schools and is also an active member of York Clio, a wide ranging history teaching network in York where she currently teaches.

Natalie has laid out her statement and indicated supporting evidence in brackets. This is a good way to highlight to the panel where there is supporting evidence for statements made. Footnotes could also be used less intrusively in the same way.

The panel felt that Natalie’s mentoring roles within Cambridge and York PGCE partnerships and her role as an active player in York Clio and core group member for a new RQT scheme which seems very thoughtfully designed to nurture teachers into their critical second year in practice all provided the kind of evidence of a Chartered Teacher of History. Her application displayed good evidence of application of ideas from reading and research within the history community.

In the zipped attachment below you will find Natalie’s 1000 word statement, plus 21 pieces of evidence and a CPD log.
