Rutland Teaching Alliance Statement 13th November 2020
The Rutland Teaching Alliance is changing.
The Government have decided to slimline the teaching school approach and establish new, larger Super Hubs to replace the many smaller ones that currently exist. These Super Hubs are in the process of being appointed to ensure that there continues to be sufficient CPD for schools in all areas. School to school support will also be offered by the new hub.
As a result of this, on the 31st August 2021, the Rutland Teaching Alliance will cease to operate. The alliance has had a fantastic 6 years growing in size, providing continuous professional development for teachers across our region and providing high quality school direct teaching placements for new teachers. We have collaborated with all schools in our county and arranged for leading speakers to provide sessions in Rutland to ensure educational provision is the highest standard for our children.
It is with regret that we announce this, however we are pleased to announce that there is still the opportunity to train as a teacher in Rutland.
Initial Teacher Education
The School Direct teacher teaching currently offered will continue to run in partnership with Nottingham Trent University.
The primary teacher training will be led by The Rutland Learning Trust who will continue to offer an exceptional training package for future primary school teachers.
The secondary teacher training will be led by Rutland and District Schools’ Federation and will continue to offer a wide range of subject areas for new secondary teachers to train in. The format of both School Direct courses will continue to run as they have successfully done, which has provided many high-quality NQTs for Rutland and the surrounding counties.
These are exciting times ahead.
