The Spencer team are thrilled to share that Chetwynd Primary Academy has been named the lead school of the new Teaching School Hub for Derby, South Derbyshire and Erewash. We are overjoyed to become part of the national network of 87 centres of excellence for teacher training and development. We will work in collaboration with many partners across the region to support:
- initial teacher training;
- early career training and
- support and leadership training and development through the new suite of NPQs.
Spencer Academies Trust schools currently offer a wide suite of training; from initial teacher training through the George Spencer Academy SCITT through to the leadership programmes offered by the George Spencer and Inclusive Teaching School Alliances and the Derby Research School at Wyndham Primary Academy. Working in partnership with other providers across the region, including Derby University, Flying High Trust and English Hub, Transform Trust and John Taylor Multi-Academy Trust among many other committed partners, the new Teaching School Hub will extend its reach and range of training programmes to support schools in the region.
