What is a Teaching School Hub?

The DfE has allocated 87 schools as ‘teaching school hubs’ – centres of excellence that can each be single points of contact within their own defined local areas. This makes it easier for schools to know where to go for quality-assured support. With large numbers of teachers in the early stages of their careers, they will benefit from better support and training through local hubs.

Alexandra Park School, the lead school in the New River Teaching Alliance, is part of the North East London Teaching School Hub (NELTSH).

Hubs will:

  • Work across boroughs to offer a consistently high standard of education for all

  • Systematically share best practice across a range of phases and areas

  • Create a meaningful local offer which meets the needs of all participating schools.

  • Deliver the full range of training in all career phases: Initial Teacher Training / Early Career Framework/ National Professional Qualifications / HT and Executive Head qualifications / other CPD

  • Work as or with Appropriate Bodies

What is the vision for the NELTSH?

Our ambition is to ensure that every child has a great teacher who inspires and unlocks their potential.

We aim to achieve this by providing exemplary training and development, for leaders and practitioners which meets the needs of all schools in our area, so that every child has access to the highest quality education and develops a desire for lifelong learning.
