The sooner these strands come together the better. Other countries such as Korea, Canada, Singapore and Australia are much further along the path of CPD and career reform than we are, but our need for great teachers to reduce educational inequality is even greater given that the gaps in attainment between our most and least disadvantaged pupils are larger. It's time for organisations across the educational spectrum, whether charities or unions, schools, subject associations or government agencies, to come together and move decisively toward a better and more effective teaching profession.
Clinical research, including trials, take place at Leeds Teaching Hospitals covering all areas of medicine and healthcare and testing treatments for a wide range of diseases. This ensures that the majority of our patients can have the opportunity to be involved. Some of our trials are in experimental medicine, which is early stage research to take discoveries made in the laboratory and turn them into effective new treatments or new methods for diagnosis. In this area, we focus on a smaller range of diseases, including musculoskeletal disease such as arthritis, cancer and cardiovascular disease.
Having the opportunity to prepare your child for the next step on their journey through life is important to the CMS faculty and staff and it is not an endeavor that any of us take lightly. We aim to provide each student with a quality education through providing highly qualified teachers and dedicated support staff who oversee our innovative and rigorous curriculum and extracurricular activities. Through these practices, I am confident we can develop well-rounded students who will be successful as they progress through each level of education.
