What do PSQM hub leaders do?

PSQM hub leaders facilitate the PSQM programme for clusters of schools, forming a dynamic 'hub.' Within each hub, a vibrant community of practice emerges, cultivated by the adept guidance of hub leaders. These leaders skilfully support science subject leaders in navigating the process of identifying whole school needs, implementing targeted actions, and fostering reflective practice. In this collaborative space, professional confidence and autonomy flourish, creating a supportive environment for continuous growth well beyond the PSQM year.
