What are Teaching Schools?

Teaching schools are ‘lead’ schools within an alliance of schools and partners whose role is to work with others to provide high-quality training and support for school improvement in their local area. Their work is focused on 6 key areas through which their success is monitored and evaluated. These are:

  • Delivering school-led initial teacher training (ITT), including Schools Direct
  • Providing tailored continuing professional development to staff across their alliances
  • Supporting other schools, usually working with a school or academy in challenging circumstances to bring about improvement
  • Identifying and developing future leaders
  • Recruiting and managing specialist leaders of education: outstanding middle and senior leaders who develop leaders in other schools
  • Building on existing research and sharing new research and development
