The Alpha Teaching School Hub is the main training and development co-ordinator for schools across Tendring, Ipswich, Colchester and Babergh. It forms part of a new national network of 87 Teaching School Hubs: school-led centres of excellence dedicated to supporting teachers throughout their teaching career.
Alpha Teaching School Hub is a collaborative network, working in partnership with schools, teacher training providers, local authorities, other Specialist hubs and Research Schools. ATSH plays a significant role in the delivery of:
- Initial Teacher Training (via CTTC)
- The Early Career Framework (ECF)
- Appropriate Body Commissioning
- Developing Middle and Senior Leaders using National Professional Qualifications.
- Wider Continued Professional Development
The programmes offered connect and support teachers and school leaders, signposting relevant links to our partner organisations and fostering a self-improving network based on evidence-based practice. In addition to providing high quality professional development for staff across the schools, the Teaching School Hub aims to improve the recruitment and retention of teachers and ultimately to have a positive impact on the outcomes for all the students across our designated area and beyond.
