Tykes Teaching School alliance works closely with its professional partners and the Barnsley Local Authority to ensure school to school support is available for schools no matter what their circumstances are.
The teaching school alliance has a wide range of experienced National Leaders of Education, Local Leaders of Education, Specialist Leaders of Education and Consultant Head Teachers who can support schools in a wide range of different areas. Please see the pen portraits of our School to School support partners and contact the Tykes Teaching School Alliance if you wish to discuss brokerage of school to school support.
If you are an experienced middle or senior leader who is interested in supporting leaders in other schools, you might want to apply to be a Specialist Leader of Education. Teaching schools are responsible for the selection and placement of Specialist Leaders of Education. This is one part of the government’s plan to offer schools a more central role in developing a self-improving and sustainable school-led system. If you are interested in becoming a Specialist Leader of Education please look out for the application window and contact the Teaching School Alliance for further information.
