What we do.

We train new teachers through School Direct with the aspiration that every trainee will become an Outstanding Teacher.

We share expertise and offer high quality professional development opportunities to ensure every teacher furthers their skills and passion for the role.

We work with academic partners to develop class based research to enhance professional knowledge of what works well in our locality.

We work with key partners to support school improvement where we are invited to support a school in need of that support.
