Colyton Grammar School have been awarded the status of Teaching School Hub by the Department for Education. Colyton is one of 87 schools nationally that have achieved this award, which is granted to schools with a track record of exceptional pupil performance and leading training in other schools.
The Colyton Teaching School Hub is a centre of excellence for teacher training and development, covering 194 schools in the four Devon districts of East Devon, Mid-Devon, North Devon and Torridge. The funding will be used to deliver national and local training programmes. In doing this, Colyton will draw on its strengths in curriculum, leadership and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), as well as a partnership of schools, trusts and training providers.
The Colyton Teaching School Hub is delivered as part of a partnership with the Kingsbridge Teaching School Hub called South West Institute for Teaching (SWIFT). The two hubs’ governance, leadership and staffing are fully integrated, including the delivery of services. SWIFT represents a significant partnership to improve the educational experience and outcomes for students in the South West as we will be able to attract, retain and develop the very best teachers.
This is a new post that is created as part of a general expansion of SWIFT services to schools, covering Initial Teacher Training, Early Career Framework, National Professional Qualifications and a Universal Programme of teacher training, delivered in association with a wider partnership of leading schools and Trusts in the region. The successful applicant will be employed directly by Colyton Grammar School but will undertake the role across the Colyton and Kingsbridge Teaching School Hubs and the wider SWIFT partnership.
