Welcome to South Central Teaching School Hub
Welcome to our website. South Central Teaching School Hub has been designated by the Department for Education (DfE) to be the Teaching School Hub for schools across Dorset, Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.
The DfE vision for Teaching School Hubs is that: "All children experience great teaching in well-led schools, made possible by a national network of Teaching School Hubs acting as school-led centres of excellence in teacher and leader training and development."
The role of Teaching School Hubs is to provide high-quality professional development to teachers at all stages of their careers. Our Hub is a collaboration of many of the former Teaching Schools in our area plus other key partners who, working in partnership, will be delivering the following DfE priorities:
- The Early Career Framework (ECF) when it is available nationally from September 2021
- The new suite of National Professional Qualifications (NPQs)
- Appropriate Body services for Early Career Teachers
- School-based Initial Teacher Training (ITT)
- Additional high-quality evidence-based continuing professional development (CPD) to school staff
In order to provide you with the necessary updates and to inform you of the next steps we will be hosting three Wednesday Webinars covering the changes to the Early Career Framework, National Professional Qualifications and Continuing Professional Development. Please click on the tabs on the right hand side of this page to find out more.
We are looking forward to working with you on these exciting new developments and will continue to keep you updated (including through further developments to this website) about how the Hub can work with you to support you and your staff.
