Who are we?

At the Endeavour Teaching School Alliance, we believe that all children have the right to an exceptional educational experience. We work together collaboratively to develop teachers and leaders to fulfil this mission. Designated as a National Teaching School in 2013, we are at the heart of a self-improving, school-led system designing and delivering bespoke training and support.
Our bespoke School Direct Initial Teacher Training programme is runout of a number of ‘hub’ locations, combing the best of ‘on the job’ training with academic rigour and high quality support.

We place great emphasis on the practicality and relevance of our professional and leadership development pathways. From our bespoke Newly Qualified Teacher Induction programme and our specially designed Towards Excellence course, to our range of NPQ Leadership programmes, we provide a comprehensive professional development offer. Furthermore, our Specialist Leaders of Education and senior teachers design and implement tailored support packages for schools in a wide variety of areas.

 

Our Alliance

The Endeavour Teaching School Alliance is a national partnership of schools. We work strategically with schools to share and develop excellent teaching and school leadership, which is rooted in evidence-based practice. We are committed to learning from each other and creating a sustainable impact on the quality of learning beyond our own school gates, on a local and national scale. Our work focuses on the core strands of the Teaching School remit, which is to develop:

  • School based Initial Teacher Training
  • Continuing Professional Learning and Development for teachers and leaders
  • School to school support, including the deployment of Specialist Leaders of Education

We work with a range of schools and delivery partners, recognising the importance of identifying and sharing best practice across a range of schools and systems.

 

Our Vision

At The Endeavour Teaching School alliance, we believe that all children have the right to an exceptional educational experience. We strive to work together to continually develop teachers and leaders to fulfil this mission.
