'Teaching Schools: Where Are We Now'

Location: Nottingham Trent University
Date: Tuesday 17th May 2016
Time: 10.45am-16:30pm

Teaching schools continue to be a key part of the Government’s strategy for a self-improving system. It is five years since the first round of such schools were announced; and they now operate in a very different environment than when they were first mooted. The number of academies has significantly grown; the role of local authorities has continued to diminish and Regional School Commissioners have been charged with significant roles in managing the overall development of the school system. Furthermore the final report of the evaluation of teaching schools has recently been published. This meeting will use the results of the evaluation as a springboard for assessing where teaching schools are and their potential future role in the schooling landscape.

The lead evaluators, Professor Qing Gu and Matt Varley, will present their findings. There will be commentaries by Dr Peter Matthews, a former HMI and early influential voice on policy development on teaching schools, Andrew Warren, Director of the Britannia Teaching School Alliance and Vice Chair of the Teaching Schools Council and Louise Stoll, Professor in Professional Learning at the UCL Institute of Education. There will be plenty of time for discussion. We expect this meeting to be well-attended so early booking is recommended.
