Higher attainment and good pupil progress that have resulted in a transformed performance record recognised in a sharp rise in the number of schools enjoying positive inspection outcomes have been built upon a collaboration between schools, Trusts, Teaching Schools and the City Council to develop a framework of training opportunities that match the needs of teachers at all stages of their career. Our schools have leaders that have successfully grown their own careers, often in the city, and are keen to support and guide you through each stage of your career
