The ethos behind all of the Teaching School training packages is that they are based on Experience development, which means that a small group of delegate, (usually 10), will observe teaching in a ‘real’ classroom environment and be trained by experienced members of staff.  There will also be the opportunity for delegates to discuss the practice that they observe.

Any of the packages advertised can be made bespoke to a schools, or group of schools, based on specific needs.

Prices for the bespoke training packages will be worked out on an individual basis based on the requirements of the school and the number of staff that need to be involved.

The packages will be run by schools from across the Teaching School Alliance.

The Teaching School are pleased to be able to offer ‘Pupil Premium Reviews’ – any school wishing to book should contact us directly for further details.
