Art & Design Lead Subject Mentor
Jo was previously an AST in Art and she is currently a SLE for teaching and learning. She has organised a range of programmes to help improve teachers and move them towards a grade 1. This has included running a 2-1 programme and an outstanding conference.
These have had a continued positive outcome on improving teaching across her school. She is now part of a teaching and learning action group within the school, and she is involved in delivering training sessions and helping support staff to improve their knowledge of what makes a lesson outstanding.
Jo has been a Lead Subject Mentor for MEITT for five years, and this has very much helped to improve the subject knowledge of art trainees in Mid Essex. She has also just taken on the role of Professional Mentor at Greensward Academy, and said she was very much looking forward to taking on this new role.
