A supportive environment in which to train

Portsmouth Teaching School Alliance provides a collaborative network for supporting teachers and schools in their development. It brings in external expertise and support and helps to ensure that the environment in which Portsmouth teachers train and work is rich in opportunity and helps them to become expert teachers and leaders in their profession.

A career development pathway

We believe that being a teacher means to understand the value of continuous learning and the Portsmouth Teaching School Alliance is committed to ensuring the opportunity for teachers in Portsmouth to continually learn and develop through a structured programme which also supports their career development from trainee teachers through to Head teachers.
