Kingsbridge Community College, a member of Education South West, is a licence holder for the Chartered Teacher Programme on behalf of Teaching Schools South West (TSSW).
Teaching Schools South West is a partnership of TSAs that are passionate about the self-improving, school-led system. Each of the Teaching Schools – Dartmoor TSA, Exeter Consortium and TSA, Plymouth TSA, South West TSA, Torbay TSA – are committed to providing outstanding services that make real, lasting, differences to schools and their wider communities. Every school needs access to the training, support and resources they need to achieve their ambitions, regardless of area they serve or the stage of their improvement journey.
By pooling our expertise, we can support more schools
By working together, our resources go further
By standing together, we can push for better arrangements for schools
In January 2020 Teaching Schools South West was designated by the Department of Education as one of six new Teaching School Hubs nationally, with a remit to support over 300 schools in our region. Kingsbridge Community College has been a Teaching School since 2011, taking a lead in the development of school-to-school partnership, support, and innovation with our Alliance partners. In 2016 Kingsbridge became one of the first national Research Schools in partnership with the Institute for Effective Education (IEE) and the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF). Kingsbridge Research School now fulfils the exciting role of supporting schools across the South in developing innovative ways of improving teaching and learning and providing support, training and expertise to support schools in improving classroom practice through the use of the very best available research and evidence. In September 2018 Kingsbridge Community College’s Teaching School became one of the first founding members of Teaching Schools South West (TSSW).
