The Chartered College of Teaching has commented on a new report into the impact of teaching schools on a self-improving school-led system.
The report ‘Creating Connections: Learning From Successful Teaching Schools’, commissioned by Teaching Schools Council shows that successful teaching schools create connections at many levels and make a distinct contribution to system leadership.
Professor Dame Alison Peacock, Chief Executive of the Chartered College of Teaching, said:
It is good to see a strong emphasis on the importance of collaboration in this new report commissioned by the Teaching Schools Council. The unique work that Teaching Schools do to support excellent initial teaching training, professional learning and support for schools within their alliances is widely valued by the profession. The Chartered College of Teaching agrees that connections created in the spirit of collegiality have a positive impact on teachers and ultimately benefit the education of children and young people.
