Teaching Schools - a Department for Education Initiative

What is a Teaching School?

Teaching schools are good and outstanding schools that work with others to provide high-quality training and development to new and experienced school staff.  They are part of the government's plan to give schools a central role in raising standards by developing a self-improving and sustainable school-led system.

By March 2016, the Department for Education's goal is to have a network of 600 teaching schools making significant improvements in the quality of teaching, leadership and pupil attainment.

Working with teaching schools

You could consider working with us as a teaching school as a strategic partner.  This would involve helping our teaching school to perform aspects of our role.

Strategic partners do not have to meet the teaching school eligibility criteria, but you would need to show that you have the competence and capacity to provide high quality support in a particular area.  This could include teacher training, continuing professional development or leadership development provision.

Teaching school alliances

Teaching school alliances are led by a teaching school and include schools that are both contributing to and benefiting from support, as well strategic partners who lead some aspects of training and development.

The PLTSA is committed to collaboration working with schools from both within and outside the alliance, as well as with other Teaching Schools.
