Trent Valley Teaching School Alliance
Housed within the Diverse Academies is the Trent Valley Teaching School Alliance (TVTSA) – a National Teaching School and Designated OLEVI Centre of Excellence. TVTSA was formed in 2013 and is based at the Ofsted Outstanding Tuxford Academy. Its many programmes are developed and delivered by colleagues across the trust’s academies.
Teaching schools are outstanding schools that work with others to provide high-quality training and development to both new and experienced staff. TVTSA currently has eight secondary and 32 primary school alliance members – the vast majority of which are rated Good or better by Ofsted.
Train to teach
If you are considering a career in teaching, each year our teaching school offers a number of places on the School Direct programme, which allows you to train to teach in a school of your choosing – with the expectation that you’ll then go on to work there on completion of the programme.
