I hope you will find this brochure helpful in keeping you up to date with all that Luton First Teaching Alliance is offering our schools this term and beyond. Just a reminder that the National College of Teaching and Leadership expect Teaching Alliances to focus their work and support on the so called ‘Big 3’ (reduced from the big 6!) which are:
1. coordinating and delivering high quality school-based Initial Teacher Training
2. providing high quality school-to-school support to spread excellent practice, particularly to schools that need it most
3. providing evidence-based professional and leadership development for teachers and leaders across their network
We are keen to ensure we can support you in your efforts to improve pupil attainment and narrow the achievement gap for disadvantaged pupils. To this end, we always welcome your views and suggestions on the kind of programmes which you would find most helpful in bringing these improvements about.
Don’t forget, we are working closely with the Local Authority (LA) to develop a team of Local Leaders of Education who the LA can confidently deploy to schools in need of support. I would encourage you to make an application; appointments and training to be confirmed this term.
