A message from the Head of Ashton on Mersey Teaching School

The pace, development and success of The Dean Trust Teaching School continues to accelerate. We were delighted to have been invited to present at Manchester Town Hall on Delivering Effective Initial Teacher Training (ITT). This was an opportunity for us to share with colleagues our innovative provision and its successes. In addition to this, we are hosting the ITT North West Regional Ofsted Conference at the Teaching School in March.

It has also been an honour to receive an invitation to join the development team for the new Apprenticeship Trailblazers for both the Teaching Assistant and Teaching Apprentices.
Contributing to the shaping of new qualifications is always a privilege as it enables us to be at the forefront of the ever-changing educational system.

Within this edition, you will read about how we are extending our leadership provision with Best Practice Network, Lord Derby Academy’s recent Ofsted inspection outcome and developments
within Teaching, Learning and Leadership, our Maths Hub and SCITT.

Thank you once again for your interest in our Teaching School and your continued support.
