Inspiring and supporting other teachers

Taking a leading role in teaching standards

The five schools in the RSA Family of Academies are all members of the newly established RSA Academies Teaching School Alliance as part of the National Teaching Schools scheme.  Through the Alliance we provide a range of professional development opportunities to teachers at all stages of their careers to teachers working in our Academies and, in some cases, to staff in other local schools. Teaching Schools take a leading role in recruiting and training new entrants to the profession, identifying leadership potential and providing support for other schools.

The RSA Academies Teaching School Alliance provides a co-ordinated programme of professional development and learning opportunities to staff working across the five Academies. Most of these are free to staff working within one of our RSA Academies, and many are also open to staff from other schools for a small fee. For information about our forthcoming courses see our CPD pages.

From September 2015 we will be inviting applications from people wishing to train to teach through Schools Direct with RSA Academies, with the training itself starting in September 2016.

I am delighted that the RSA Academies Teaching School Alliance proposal has been approved. This will give teachers at all stages of their career even more opportunities to lead and participate in high quality training and development.
