The Alban Teaching School Hub is one of 87 designated school-led centres of excellence for teacher development. Teaching School Hubs are ambassadors for the world class delivery of new teacher development reforms in England. Our overall responsibility is to maximise opportunity and development to teachers at all stages of their development; this work is focused on the golden thread of teacher development from ITT to school leadership.
The mission from the DfE is for Teaching School Hubs to lead evidence-based teacher development to empower teachers and school leaders and, most importantly, impact pupil outcomes.
Our work is centred around these five pillars:
- Initial Teacher Training
- Early Career Framework
- National Professional Qualifications
- Appropriate Body Services
We have an established reputation as an outstanding ITT and teacher development provider and innovators of highly effective evidence-based CPD. Our work as a hub is integral to the implementation of the recruitment and retention strategy to raise teacher quality and effectiveness.
Vision and Values
We aim to:
Empower teachers, leaders and support staff at all stages of their career through evidence-based professional development.
Support, develop and retain outstanding teachers and support staff across our hub region to provide the best learning outcomes for every child.
Uphold the values and virtues of ethical education in all aspects of our work.
Ensure collaboration, partnerships, respect and innovation are central to all aspects of our work.
