Retention and recruitment of the highest quality staff is essential to successfully achieve our aims. We are supporting the creation of a Teaching School Alliance to be based in the West of the Region. This will promote the long-term professional development of all of our education team and to provide support and opportunities for people wishing to become qualified teachers, future school leaders and better-qualified support staff.
Research informs us that the most successful organisations are those with the capacity to continue to learn and we intend to do this through collaboration with local and regional partners in local authorities, local schools, academies, federations and Multi Academy Trusts.
Our success will be measured by the impact we and our collaborators have on the learning landscape of the region now and more pertinently in the future for our children’s children.
