Teaching schools

The Department for Education identify working with other schools as an effective way of achieving school improvement. Collaboration with teaching schools is one way of doing this as identified in this extract from DfE guidance:

Teaching schools have an important role to play in a school-led system and in school improvement. Teaching schools will be centres of excellence, taking on a more focused role that prioritises:

  • co-ordinating and delivering high quality school-based initial teacher training (ITT)
  • Providing high quality school-to-school support to spread excellent practice, particularly to schools that need it most
  • Providing evidence-based professional and leadership development for teachers and leaders across their network
