Jo Bridgeman

Lead Subject Mentor for Art & Design

Previously an AST in Art and am currently a SLE for teaching and learning. I have organised a range of programmes to help improve teachers and move them towards a grade 1 in their teaching. This has included running a 2-1 programme and an outstanding conference.

These have had a continued positive outcome on improving teaching across my school. I am now part of a teaching and learning action group within the school and am involved with delivering training sessions and helping support staff to improve their knowledge of what makes a lesson outstanding.

I have been a Lead Subject Mentor for MEITT for 3 years now and this has helped to improve the subject knowledge of art trainees in Mid Essex. I have just been made Professional Mentor for Mid Essex and am very much looking forward to taking on this new role.
