Welcome from the Director


George Spencer Teaching School Alliance is a thriving collaboration of over 50 schools in the East Midlands who are committed to working together to secure the very best outcomes for our children. We share a passion for high quality professional development to recruit and retain the best members of staff, nurture leadership and drive sustainable school improvement both within and across schools. Collaboration is at the heart of ways of working and membership of our teaching school is free.


Our programmes and training opportunities run from Thinking of Teaching events all the way through to the National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH) and the National Professional Qualification for Executive Leadership (NPQEL) alongside an active network of Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) with a passion for school improvement. We are also fortunate to collaborate closely with both East Midlands West Maths HUB and Derby Research School who also sit within the Spencer Academies Trust of schools.


For further information about our professional development opportunities, please take a look at our Teacher CPD & Training tab above.
