Assistant Headteacher and Head of Teaching Schoolaingram@studleyhighschool.org.uk
The Shires TSA is a wonderful opportunity for schools within Warwickshire and Worcestershire to collaborate, consolidate and improve outcomes for pupils within individual contexts. This is delivered by maintaining a culture of trust, openness and a desire to strive to succeed. Shires TSA delivers on three focus areas: Professional Development; ITT and School to School Support. All three are integral to an institution recruiting and retaining the best colleagues in the profession; organic growth of leaders and sharing best practice.
Assistant Headteacher in charge of Initial Teacher Trainingapage@studleyhighschool.org.uk
I have been involved in Initial Teacher Training for several years and passionately believe that all children deserve to be taught by the very best practitioners. I also firmly believe that teacher training should give trainees the skills, opportunity and experience to develop into exceptional practitioners with sustainable careers. Working within the Shires Alliance offers so much potential for trainee teachers. Not only are all of our schools good or outstanding, but they offer a huge range of expertise. Teaching is the most rewarding career for me. Every day is different. The feeling of helping a pupil learn and make progress is second to none. Teachers have such an impact on young people; helping them shape the future adult they will become.
Teaching School, Marketing & Communications Managertjordan@studleyhighschool.org.uk
I qualified as a teacher in 1994 and have worked in the education field for over 22 years, spending the last 6 years in Teaching School and ITT settings. I truly believe in the purpose of a Teaching School Alliance, with teacher growth and development at the heart of what we do, leading naturally to the most positive impact on young learners. My role is to raise the profile of not only the Shires Alliance, but teaching as a career in Warwickshire and Worcestershire.
