The Jurassic Coast Teaching Schools’ Alliance have been awarded a grant from the National College for Teaching and Leadership to conduct a Workload Challenge Research Project. The alliance will be looking to compare the collection and use of data by teachers and doctors with the aim of investigating whether some of the principles which underpin the medical profession’s approach can be helpfully applied to schools.

More details about the project and how to get involved will follow shortly but please do contact Laura Webb if you would like to know more.

TrioThe 2017/18 teacher training application round is now open. The Jurassic Coast Teaching Schools’ Alliance are pleased to offer a number of School Direct (fee paying) training placements across a number of Home schools. Click here for full information.

logoThe Jurassic Coast Teaching schools Alliance are delighted to be part of the Future Teaching Scholars Programme, which is an exciting new and challenging route into teaching. It is a six-year, full-time programme which comprises:

  • three years of undergraduate study
  • one year in postgraduate employment-based teacher training
  • two further years employed as a maths or physics teacher

Throughout the programme, Future Teaching Scholars will have access to subject-specific and teacher development opportunities delivered by outstanding teaching schools, the central programme team and invited guests. During the six-year programme you will experience teaching in a wide variety of schools – including some which are more challenging. You will also participate in research projects and be able to access the Future Teaching Scholars network and web portal.
