Teaching School

Welcome to TLET Teaching School at Ashlawn School

“We launched in 2014. TLET Teaching School is the Professional Development Centre for schools, academies and trusts in the Midlands. Our purpose is to provide high-quality training, support and induction for the teaching profession, and our specialism lies with Initial Teacher Training.”
Angela Greenway, Head of Teaching School.

School Experience Programme (SEP)

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we cannot offer classroom-based school experience at this time. However, we are having regular two-hour ‘SEP Surgery’ sessions for a maximum of 6 people in school to explain what’s involved, with topics ranging from writing your application to achieving QTS with PGCE.

For more information please contact us or go to https://schoolexperience.education.gov.uk/ or

School Direct

School Direct courses last a year and result in qualified teacher status (QTS). Moreover, they earn you a postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE) and/or Masters Degree-level credits in partnership with a university. You’ll train in two schools within our School Partnership Network across Coventry, Warwickshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire, getting the chance to learn ‘on the job’. You will receive intensive support from experienced teachers and mentors as well as experience in classroom teaching. Our School Direct Trainees often secure a full-time permanent teaching role within our school partnership network.

School to School Support

We support school improvement by working with underperforming maintained schools and academies. Typically these schools are maintained schools judged by Ofsted as ‘Requires Improvement’, or an academy judged as ‘Requires Improvement’ or ‘Inadequate’.

As a Teaching School and National Support School, we have supported a number of local primary and secondary schools which require improvement in specific areas, such as raising standards, reducing performance variation, innovations in leading learning, system leadership development and strategic planning.

Our team includes Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) who have a proven track record in supporting Senior and Middle Leaders to facilitate school improvement.

Teaching Professional Development (CPD)

Effective training and professional development is at the heart of school, and career, improvement. With changing contexts, qualifications, standards and expectations comes the necessity to be able to approach matters in different ways. Professional development for individual staff is often a precursor to developing high-performing teams.

Whether you are a trainee teacher, NQT, a teacher wanting to improve in the classroom, a subject leader requiring team training, or an experienced middle leader looking to develop senior whole-school leadership skills, we have a range of CPD opportunities for you.
