DRET Teaching School Hub is delighted to serve as one of 87 Teaching School Hubs around the country to contribute to and bring together provision that serves teacher development and leadership development. As a centre of excellence for professional development, we believe that investment in teacher and leadership development is about making sure all children and young people in North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire benefit in every single teacher’s classroom. We want to make it easier for schools to invest in brilliant teachers and leaders, to further support their professional development and retain teachers within the profession.
As a Teaching School Hub, we are committed to working for and with everyone in the region. Our duty is to serve all primary schools, secondary schools, specialist schools or provision, and Alternative Provision, and we will do this by playing our role in the delivery of the ‘golden thread’ of professional development, acting as a delivery arm for:
- Early Career Framework (ECF)
- National Professional Qualifications (NPQs)
- Appropriate Body (AB) services for Early Career Teachers
In terms of a wider CPD offer, the Teaching School Hub will act as a ‘one-stop-shop’ by signposting to:
- DfE accredited and approved programmes, working in partnership with designated curriculum hubs and KYRA Research School;
- Existing high quality CPD provision which is complementary to that of the Teaching School Hub
Commission or design a CPD offer where there are identified needs unmet by other available CPD routes.
The Teaching School Hub is committed to effective partnership working with an emphasis on empowering key stakeholders and partners to meaningfully contribute to developing and achieving the vision of the Teaching School Hub. We have an established Partnership Board, bringing together a collective range of knowledge and expertise providing a regular open forum for key stakeholders in the Teaching School Hub region (North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire) to meet and discuss matters concerning the operations of the Teaching School Hub.
We believe that effective, high quality professional development leads to continual improvement in teacher retention and positive outcomes for all pupils. We look forward to working with colleagues across the region to bring this to fruition.
