The Rutland Teaching Alliance is a partnership of outstanding providers ranging from Primary Schools through to Higher Education Institutes. Our shared vision is to raise the achievement of all students within Rutland and to respond effectively to the professional needs of staff locally and within the surrounding counties. Our Alliance brings together a wealth of experience and expertise at all levels including those of National Leaders in Education. We are committed to developing and delivering a range of high quality professional development courses for teachers at all career stages. We are working in close partnership with Nottingham Trent University to significantly increase the number of Initial Teacher Training places in the region through our successful School Direct scheme. In October 2016 we appointed a strong team of Specialist Leaders in Education who are working in partnership with schools within the Alliance. We are developing a culture of action research so that educational change is closely linked to evidence on the ground.
School Experience Programme
Before applying for a School Direct course we strongly recommend that you take part in our School Experience Programme. The duration of this experience can be anything from a few days to several weeks, but will provide you with a vital insight into school life.
