Westerton Primary Academy is proud to be a Strategic Partner of Leeds Teaching School Hub. We have benefited greatly from having worked with the hub since its inception in September 2021 on the key ‘golden thread’ of core responsibilities of Initial Teacher Training (ITT), the Early Career Framework (ECF) and the National Professional Qualification suite (NPQs).

It is essential that all teachers from the point at which they enter the profession at the start of their training year right through to teachers with many years of professional experience are given exceptional opportunities to develop their knowledge and skills. Leeds Teaching School Hub is different to other providers in its approach as it offers a highly personalised, face-to-face experience that is woven throughout all aspects of its delivery programme. 

The highly experienced and knowledgeable Director of ECF is dedicated to working with schools across the city. As a consequence, those schools benefit from in-person visits that instill confidence in both the Early Career Teacher (ECT) and the mentor, thus empowering them to engage effectively with the ECF and to develop their knowledge and expertise. Expert facilitators also offer a further layer of support for the professional development of both ECTs and mentors. 

Leeds Teaching School Hub also delivers the full suite of NPQs and aims to offer the vast majority of its NPQ seminars in a face-to-face setting, providing colleagues from across the city with the opportunity to come together, to network, to reflect on and to refine their practice. 

We would highly recommend all aspects of the work of Leeds Teaching Hub and if, having had the opportunity to start to learn about the hub’s work, you wish to find out more, then we would welcome a conversation with you.
