A RECENTLY-qualified teacher at Kidderminster’s Baxter College has been accepted onto a prestigious national programme after being singled out as a potential outstanding leader.

Vasiliki Evryviadou is joining the Leadership Legacy Project run by SSAT, the Schools, Students and Teachers network.

The leadership programme is designed for those in their first two to four years of teaching who are already showing signs of having leadership qualities.

Baxter College principal Matthew Carpenter said: “Miss Evryviadou has just started her second year as a language teacher here, after entering the profession in 2016, and this is an opportunity she most certainly deserves.

“Professional development for staff is crucial to ensuring our pupils can make the most of their school years and to become an SSAT Leadership Fellow is especially prestigious.

“She will have the opportunity to engage with some of the best leaders nationally and internationally and to examine leadership in other sectors as well.”

The SSAT has been designing and delivering school leadership development programmes for 15 years and boasts more than 14,000 alumni.
