Empower Me

Our free two-module MTPT Project Accreditation pilot is underpinned by three coaching sessions per module and empowers you to document and reflect on your parental leave CPD in a more structured manner.  The MTPT Project’s ‘no guilt, no pressure’ policy ensures that our accreditation is both motivating and flexible, designed to work around the demands of your new family.

Module 1:

*Please note: this module can be completed at any stage of your parental leave.  You might, for example, begin your Module 1 whilst waiting for your new baby and benefit from all three coaching sessions or you might use the last few weeks of your parental leave to collate your Notes, complete your Reflection and Action Plan retrospectively following a one-off coaching session.

Module 2:


You are eligible for this accreditation if you are interested in returning to work in an educational setting* and you meet any of the following criteria:

    • You are approaching, or currently on maternity or paternity leave
    • OR you are approaching the end of your parental leave and are preparing to return to work
    • OR you have taken an extended break from teaching to look after your family

You are not eligible for our Accreditation if you are already undertaking formalised CPD during your parental leave, like a Masters, NPQH or Ed Doctorate.

*Please note: this does not necessarily have to be within a conventional school setting.  



Our Accreditation Coaches are currently supporting 20 teachers through their Accreditation.  Here’s what they have to say about their experience:

Improving my personal confidence through looking at this [CPD] inspired me to take up running, and join an orchestra, as well as making me into a better, more refreshed parent. It gave me the independence and self-pride that I wished for, and boosted my confidence at home and in the workplace.”

CPD focus: knowledge retention in Maths Leanne Shaw

Maths Teacher

“Discovering the MTPT has provided me with a way of evidencing the work that I carried out whilst on maternity leave, and I have no doubt that I will find this beneficial when providing evidence for appraisals.

The ‘no guilt, no pressure’ policy has been great.  I feel a sense of pride in being able to work towards something that recognises the work that I have done.”

CPD focus: subject knowledge development in response to the new curriculum Joy Helliwell

RE and Citizenship Teacher

“The MTPT Project coaching and Accreditation has been fantastic and my coach has been instrumental in helping me recognise my own direction with certain projects or ideas.

It was a great starting point for the beginning of maternity leave to have a loose structure and sense of purpose.”

CPD focus: collaborative digital resource sharing to reduce workload Kat Howard
