It may also benefit teachers who are returning to the profession. Colleagues can follow a Teaching and Learning route or use it as a stepping stone towards leadership positions. PPP Application and ‘Buddy’ The participant needs to complete a brief application form that will be supported by a Senior Leader. There needs to be an in-school “buddy’ who can discuss the sessions and gap tasks and facilitate experiences in school. Being a ‘buddy’ is not a huge commitment, but should be someone with leadership experience.
