Teacher Training

Providing initial teacher training for new teachers and upskilling programmes for serving teaching staff

Welcome to the Teacher Training Service. We support the overarching goal of ‘Altogether better for children and young people’ through contributing to improved education and training of the portfolio’s teaching staff and leadership teams.

We train and upskill new and serving teachers, teaching assistants and school leadership staff with the aim of schools having a confident and competent teaching staff, supported by good leadership and management. Achieving this aim leads to better teaching and learning in schools.

We do the above by delivering initial teacher training courses for new teachers; supporting teaching assistants with online courses; and providing Cambridge certificate and diploma courses in teaching and learning and in leadership for, respectively, serving teachers and school leadership staff.

Who we are

The Teacher Training Service is led by the Teacher Training Advisor. The Advisor is supported by school staff who support teachers in training.
