Yorkshire Teaching School Alliance is a partnership of 17 Yorkshire Secondary Schools, The University of York, Leeds Beckett University, York St John University and Leeds Trinity University. In conjunction with the Anglican Diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales, the Catholic Diocese of Leeds and North Yorkshire Local Authority we aim to provide Initial Teacher Training, Continuing Professional Development and School to School Support and take a leading role in Research and Development within our region.
We are driven by a moral purpose motivated by our desire to ensure young people have the best educational opportunities in life.
Our alliance is underpinned by relationships built on trust and care founded on an understanding of individual contexts and offering quality provision throughout. This alliance will provide support within a sustainable framework, operating openly, cooperatively and collaboratively with all partners so that all feel valued.
Drawing on our varied membership, we will provide expertise from different educational contexts. As an alliance we will strive for excellence in our standards built on an academic foundation that draws on the best in educational research.
At the centre of our work is our priority to develop teaching and learning in order to make a tangible impact on young people and to develop teachers and leaders of the future.
