What we look for at Northern Lights TSA


The Northern Lights Teaching School Alliance consists of the St Thomas More Partnership of Schools and within the alliance the schools assist and offer a support network and benefit from the support provided and sharing best practice.

Alliance partners will have expressed an active interest in the work of the Teaching School Alliance, will stand to benefit from the network of research and best practice sharing and support the NLTSA Academies’ Teaching School to perform aspects of our role.

In Alliance partners we look for schools to meet the teaching school eligibility criteria and expect partners to demonstrate competence and capacity to provide high quality support in a particular area. This might include Initial Teacher Training, Continuing Professional Development, Leadership and Research and Development.
