I am delighted to share with you the Events Programme of Leading Learning Forward TSA, led by St Hugh’s School, which is a National Teaching School in North Lincolnshire working in association with The Humber Teaching School in North East Lincolnshire.
St Hugh's National Teaching School and The Humber Teaching School also work in association with over one hundred other partner and associate organisations.
As well as offering training and support for their own alliance, teaching schools identify and co-ordinate expertise from their alliance, using the best leaders and teachers to:
- Play a greater role in training new entrants to the profession (Initial Teacher Training)
- Lead peer-to-peer professional and leadership development (Professional Learning)
- Identify and develop leadership potential (Leadership Development)
- Provide support for other schools (Professional Support)
- Designate and broker Local Leaders of Education (LLE) and Specialist Leaders of Education (SLE)
- Undertake Research and Development
Leading Learning Forward TSA is delighted to offer and promote the following programmes & qualifications:
Supporting Deaf Children in School
Teachers of the Deaf play a vital role in supporting deaf children from birth to adulthood, supporting and working with families, and acting as a key worker for deaf children and young people. It can offer a unique career pathway for teachers and SENCOs looking to take on a new role that can have a big impact on deaf children.
The British Association of Teachers of the Deaf website has more information on the role and the different training and funding options available: contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Separately, if you work with deaf children, the National Deaf Children’s Society produces a range of free resources for teachers and commissioners, ranging from simple deaf-friendly teaching tips to quality standards for education support, to help make sure deaf children can achieve their potential.
