TUDOR Grange Academy Solihull has been selected to become a teaching school hub.
Teachers across the country will benefit from vital developmental support and expert advice, allowing them to improve a broad range of teaching skills, under plans announced by the Department for Education.
Teachers will get best-practice and expert advice on how best to engage with pupils, lesson planning, and classroom management, as the hubs programme is rolled out across the country.
Tudor Grange Academy, Solihull is one the 81 schools in England selected to be designated as a new teaching school hub.
The 81 new hubs will be rolled out in addition to those six existing test and learn teaching school hubs, meaning there will be nationwide coverage for the first time, and that every school in England will now have access to a local centre of excellence for teacher training.
Each hub, all of which will be operational and helping schools from this September, will have its own defined geographical patch and will be expected to be accessible to all schools within that area, serving on average around 250 schools each.
“The difficulties presented by Covid have not deterred us from thinking about the future of the education system,” said Claire Maclean, chief executive of Tudor Grange Academies Trust.
“We are delighted that Tudor Grange Academy Solihull has been designated as a teaching school hub; this will allow us to build even stronger relationships between schools, multi academy trusts, local authorities and other strategic partners and we know that working together will mean excellent support for the development of professionals at every stage of their career so that we can better serve all our children and families.”
