MTPT Project

Inspiring, empowering and connecting teachers choosing to complete continued professional development whilst on parental leave. We believe that parents are entitled to make decisions that support their wellbeing and the wellbeing of their families. Wellbeing means different things for different people: for some, this means maintaining a sense of that “teacher” identity during the “break” of parental leave. We think creatively about the type of activities that have a positive impact on our students and can therefore be considered effective professional learning, and we love exploring the simplicity or problem-solving challenge (!) of enjoying these with babies and toddlers. Our community has a significant impact on the culture of schools, influencing organisations to be more equal and more inclusive. The ramifications of our work make teaching not only a family friendly career choice for mothers and fathers, but also improves working conditions for all teachers.

Support for our social media strategy

Aug 30, 2022

Our online presence is essential to serving our community. Social media and the flexibility of online and recorded events mean that teachers can remain connected to each other, or access professional networking opportunities even when physically isolated during a period of leave, or when juggling the demands of a busy working life. We operate across four platforms: • Twitter (10.5k followers) • Instagram (982 followers) • Facebook (842 group members) • LinkedIn Our website is the cornerstone of our work as a charity, and we also send out a termly newsletter to the subscribers to our mailing list. We know that our online and social media presence has a significant positive impact on our community and helps us to address the motherhood penalty in education, as well as empower all parents to make the right choices for them. We have a small team of volunteers to post updates on our social media channels. We now are needing expert support to help us further develop a sustainable social media audience.
