Teaching Schools

Teaching Schools

Launched in 2011, there are over 600 teaching schools across the country. Their role is to work with others to provide high-quality training and support for school improvement in their local area.

Teaching schools lead in 6 areas:

  • delivering school-led initial teacher training (ITT), including School Direct
  • providing tailored CPD to staff 
  • supporting other schools to bring about improvement
  • identifying and developing future leaders
  • recruiting and managing specialist leaders of education
  • building on existing research and sharing new research and development

Teaching School Alliances

Teaching school alliances are led by a teaching school and include schools that are benefiting from support, as well as strategic partners who lead some aspects of training and development. Strategic partners may include:
  • other schools from any phase or sector
  • universities
  • academy chains
  • local authorities
  • dioceses
  • private sector organisations

 Alliances may be cross phase and cross sector, work across local authorities and may include different types of organisations.
