Mr Andrew Shakos, Operations Director of The Dean Trust

May I express a very warm welcome to our Teaching School website from all our valued and highly regarded partners and everyone at The Dean Trust.

The Dean Trust Teaching School is very much a partnership of experienced, dedicated, enthusiastic and supportive professionals who are committed to raising standards and outcomes for all young people.

We very much understand and appreciate the significance of strong collaboration in providing school to school support, sharing the best research and practice, and developing teaching and leadership capacity to improve educational provision across all phases.

The Dean Trust recognises our responsibility for hosting and assuring the quality for our Teaching School and it is an honour to be working within such a strong alliance of educational partners who can provide high quality guidance and support.

The Teaching School is at the heart of our growing multi academy trust. We have a vibrant and successful school-centred initial teacher training (SCITT) programme, a thriving and far-reaching Maths Hub, and a team of highly regarded National Leaders of Governance, National Leaders of Education, Local Leaders of Education, Specialist Leaders of Education, facilitators, mentors and coaches to support continued professional development.

The Dean Trust leads the Outstanding Leaders Partnership (OLP) with the NCTL licence to deliver leadership programmes nationally.

Our reputation for delivering consistently high quality programmes and support is built on a solid foundation of partnership working. Each member of our team is passionate and resilient in addressing the challenges of our ever changing educational landscape and they are committed to continued self-development, innovation and an unapologetic drive for excellence.

Should you feel that you would like to join The Dean Trust Teaching School or should you feel that we might be able to support you on your journey then please do not hesitate to contact us.

Wishing you and your teams every success.
