As an alliance, we are committed to the development of evidence-informed practice in every classroom. Our professional development programme and local network groups bring teachers together to share effective practice and knowledge across our schools.

We offer the School Direct training programme, leading to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) awarded by the University of Hull. Courses last one year, full time.

We provide a wide variety of professional development opportunity for the whole school team – from newly qualified teachers to governors, teaching assistants to leaders.

Our alliance provides school to school support packages which ensure that schools develop and build on their own distinctive ethos and culture. We provide support by working openly, collaboratively and in a non-judgemental way, celebrating the strengths of supported schools.

At Scarborough Teaching Alliance, we are committed to apply the characteristics of effective learning to all aspects of our work, based on a belief that learning is a lifelong process.
