Mrs A. Diaz : NPQML


Mrs Diaz is to be congratulated on passing her NPQML course last term. This highly-respected and demanding course requires Middle Leaders within schools to take on a major departmental project which is squarely aimed at improving student progress. Mrs Diaz led a new programme in the MfL departments that sought:

To ensure an effective transition to the new GCSE specifications implementing Rachel Hawkes’s strategies using target language in the classroom to promote spontaneous talk, the use of literary texts and an increased use of grammar in the MFL department at earlier stages.

These initiatives helped secure a smooth transition to the new 9-1 graded GCSEs in Spanish, French and German; Mrs Diaz has proved her ability, through careful strategic planning, to lead others and inspire students to higher grades. Those of you who have been taught by Mrs Diaz will recognise her commitment, knowledge and skill as a teacher at NKS – this new qualification recognises these qualities.
