…with the West London Teaching School Alliance.
WLTSA is an established network of early years, primary, secondary and sixth form schools in West London.
We currently have 35 strategic partner schools (predominantly from Hammersmith & Fulham and Kensington & Chelsea but also Ealing, Westminster, Richmond, Hillingdon and Lambeth). Other strategic partners include the Diocese of Westminster, Local Authority Tri-borough and Universities.
Our Teaching School is Sacred Heart High School in Hammersmith and our mission is to ensure a bright future for all learners through innovation, collaboration, engagement and success.
We provide significant support to schools wishing to take on School Direct teacher trainees and can provide detailed advice on the advantages to schools (and to trainees) of this teacher training route. All our 35 schools will be running specific teacher training programmes for 2016-17 and we are now recruiting for well over 100 trainees. See more details including open days, recruitment fairs and our vacancy tables for 2016-17 programmes, under the Initial Teacher Training tab above.
We also offer School to School Support and have ten Specialist Leaders of Education (various specialisms for primary and secondary) who can provide targeted expertise. We receive funding as a national Maths Hub and provide significant support to schools is this area. We run coaching and leadership programmes (at all levels) and research opportunities.
