A National Teaching School is responsible for meeting some key objectives each academic year as set by the NCTL and Dfe.. These are referred to as "The Big 6".  These are the areas we are working with are :

 CPD/Succession Planning

 School to School Support/Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs)

Initial Teacher Training (ITT)/ Research and Development (R&D)

As the Teaching School has developed over the last few years, the approach to updating our Alliance members and partners has changed. We are now holding a half termly meeting at Colmore for all Senior Leaders within our schools. The purpose of these meetings is to update our Alliance on the work that is being done, new initiatives that need ideas and input and to discuss the current climate in our Alliance schools and indeed across the city.

Our aim is for these meetings to be as interactive as possible to ensure we are meeting the needs of our schools and ensure that voices are being heard.

The meeting dates for 2017 are :

 - Thursday 26th January 2017  9.30 - 11.00 at Colmore

- Wednesday 8th March 2017    9.30 - 11.00 at Colmore

- Wednesday 3rd May 2017       9.30 - 11.00 at Colmore

-Tuesday 6th June 2017             9.30 - 11.00 at Colmore
