Our alliance harnesses the varied and substantial expertise and experience of all its members and as a result is able to offer an extensive range of support to suit all members. We offer an innovative ITT route, known as ‘School Direct’ committed to increasing the number of quality teachers, particularly in shortage subjects. In addition, we offer a range of high quality CPD for staff at all levels and tailored school-to-school support.
Our style of outreach is both constructive and sensitive and we are committed towards implementing substantial change in the schools we support. In order to strengthen this work, we have a team of Specialist Leaders in Education who can be deployed to work in other schools. We are keen to nurture and grow staff across our alliance and offer a range of opportunities for staff to develop as leaders. We are also developing a research culture within our alliance that will impact positively on teaching and learning and student achievement.
Our overall strategic vision is to systematically raise the achievement of all students within our alliance schools and beyond.
