The latest of wave teaching schools announced

18 April 2013

The National College for Teaching and Leadership has confirmed the next tranche of 150 new schools which brings the total number of teaching schools to just over 360.

The teaching schools programme began in 2011, and gives outstanding schools the opportunity to lead a group of schools, working with other partners to deliver support for teachers and school leaders.

Whilst The National College for Teaching and Leadership (the new single agency created from the merger of the Teaching Agency and National College for School Leadership) has responsibility for the designation and quality of teaching schools, it is largely down to the teaching school alliances what governance and commercial structures are put in place to support delivery.

It is therefore vital that teaching schools take advice on, putting in place appropriately robust arrangements to ensure that its teaching school vision is realised.
