Peninsula SCITT: find your teaching space

The Peninsula Teaching School started in September 2011 as one of the first 100 Teaching Schools across England, the first in Cornwall and at that time one of only four in South West England. From the beginning the aim of the Teaching School has been to be inclusive, to develop new leaders, train new teachers and catalyse the flow of good practice from school to school. We aim to improve the quality of teaching across the alliance, to foster high aspirations for your young people and to support each other.

The Peninsula Teaching School acts as a broker for eleven Specialist Leaders of Education or SLEs. SLEs are a part of the school improvement programme that also includes National Leaders of Education (NLEs) and Local Leaders of Education (LLEs). SLEs are outstanding senior or middle leaders who apply to and are shortlisted by the National College for School Leadership before being passed on to the designated Teaching School geographically nearest. SLEs work to support individuals and teams in similar positions within other schools to develop their leadership capacity and practice and so improve outcomes for children.
