Empower Me

The MTPT Project’s coaching offer began with our Accreditation programme and has since expanded into a range of different coaching models to support teachers during and following the parental leave period.

We encourage you to discuss your coaching with your school and request funding through your school’s CPD budget or by negotiating how your KIT days are used.  However, where this isn’t appropriate, we are able to offer pro-bono spaces on all of our programmes to ensure that all teachers have access to our transformational programmes over the parental leave period.

Use the links on the right to sign up for one of our coaching offers, or scroll down to learn more about the structure of our one-of-a-kind CPD Accreditation. 

The MTPT project Accreditation

Our two-module MTPT Project Accreditation pilot is underpinned by three coaching sessions per module and empowers teachers on parental leave to document and reflect on their 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 teachers’ new families.  

It costs £680, funded by your school.  Where school funding is unavailable, we have a pro-bono waiting list that normally gets you matched up with a coach within 2-3 months.  Don’t let funding present itself as a barrier – talk to us and we will get you sorted!

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:


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

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

Teachers are not eligible for our Accreditation if they are already undertaking formalised CPD during their 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 more than 100 teachers through their Accreditation.  Here’s what they have to say about their experience:
