The Loughborough Learning Alliance (LLA) is led by Ashmount School, a well-recognised Teaching School in Leicestershire. Teaching schools are key in managing talent and succession planning. They are in an ideal position to identify the needs of schools, present and future, while simultaneously preparing new teachers in addition to experienced practitioners to progress to outstanding and inspirational leaders of the future.
Interested new entrants to the profession are supported through Initial Teacher Training (ITT), which is led by Ashmount School. This training provides an experienced mentor and provides trainees with focused training to prepare them for their future careers. The LLA has a proven track record of successful employment of graduates from the ITT programme.
Experienced practitioners are encouraged to attended further CPD opportunities at all levels to develop their skills, with specified courses running throughout the year. These help to prepare individuals for future leadership roles.
The LLA also provides guidance and support for those at the upper echelons of their career, through training days for senior leaders and support groups.
LLA can deliver the Olevi Outstanding Teacher Programme and the Improving Teacher Programme.
