DEVELOPING WORLD CLASS TEACHERS AND LEADERS
Teaching schools give outstanding schools a leading role in the training and professional development of teachers, support staff and headteachers, as well as contributing to the raising of standards through school-to-school support.
WHAT IS A TEACHING SCHOOL?
Teaching schools are part of the government’s drive to give schools more freedom and to enable schools to take increasing responsibility for managing the education system. The vision for teaching schools is to have established a network of around 500 outstanding teaching school alliances by 2015 that will drive significant improvement in the quality of professional practice, improving the attainment of every child.
