Support for Teaching Schools

The SDSA has a growing portfolio of work to provide business support and extra capacity and co-ordination to Teaching Schools to enable them to fulfil their growing mandate.

The SDSA is procured by groups of Teaching Schools to provide them with the extra capacity and resources they need. As the role of Teaching Schools expands to include not just initial teacher training and CPD but also a growing responsibility for school to school improvement, then the business and co-ordination demands of this programme increase. The SDSA has the expertise is to provide this business support to enable the Teaching School professional and leadership staff to concentrate on the areas of their own expertise in school improvement. In the most significant package of support the SDSA has also helped Teaching Schools form companies and legal entities, recruit co-ordinators and to seek/obtain substantial funds to support the development of a school-led improvement system.
