The Teaching Schools Council

The self-improving school-led system is at the heart of the government’s vision for education in England. Simply put, this means that schools are being empowered to make decisions about how to improve and to work collaboratively to support each other to do so.

The Teaching Schools Council is pleased to be playing a role to help drive forwards the 2019/20 School Improvement Offer and provide wrap around support to help ensure success. Teaching School Representatives and their regional teams will be working in partnership with Local Authorities, MATs and Dioceses to help ensure our most vulnerable schools receive the support they need. We will be working directly with these schools to broker an effective match between the specific needs of the school and the expertise and experience of the National Leaders of Education.We are confident that the high quality, targeted and focused support which will be provided going forwards as part of the 2019/20 Offer will go hand in hand with our drive towards every child attending a great school.
