New Training programme for teachers launched by Alliance for Learning

The Alliance for Learning has joined forces with Ambition Institute to deliver a new Early Career Teachers Programme across Greater Manchester. This radical new support programme for teachers aims to stop people leaving the profession: currently, one in five new teachers leave the classroom within the first two years of their career, which can lead to staff shortages and have a negative impact on young people.

From September, almost 1,500 teachers across the region will get extra support as part of a government-funded programme – Ambition Institute is one of four providers involved and will be working with us to give a combination of face to face training, virtual peer-learning groups, expert-led webinars and weekly video tutorials for NQs in schools across the region, including those in our Trust.

Alliance for Learning Director Lisa Fathers comments: “We are delighted that our teaching school is partnering with Ambition Institute on the Early Career Teachers roll out in Greater Manchester. As a large teaching school alliance, we are really well placed to help drive this work. We believe that investing in our early career teachers is the right thing to do for our profession. We’re really excited about what the impact of this work will be.”
