Vision & Aims

Improvement Through Collaboration

Our overall aim is to ensure outstanding learning opportunities for all students within our alliance and beyond, in order to enhance life chances. Our vision is that by bringing together the strengths of all The Duston Teaching School Alliance partners we have a unique opportunity to develop a sustainable culture of aspiration, collaboration and excellence.

Our key aims are to-

  1. Work with other schools in a collaborative way to build improvement
  2. Develop expertise in the school workforce, regardless of experience through excellence in Initial Teaching Training through to Leadership Development
  3. Develop capacity to ensure improvement is sustainable

The Alliance will narrow the gap in achievement through ensuring continuous improvement in standards of attainment. TDTSA is committed to facilitating the highest standards of teaching, learning, assessment and development in reach phase of learning.

The Alliance will ensure excellent professional development for all levels of experience through the development and implementation of outstanding CPD opportunities ensuring that it is tailored to the unique and evolving needs of our partners and beyond.

We will support new recruits to the profession through a high quality programme for Initial Teacher Training and NQT’s and offer opportunities for aspiring and future leaders.

We recognise the importance of our Alliance and the responsibility we have to support schools in collaboration, rather than through direction, to ensure sustainable improvement and development.
