Pickwick Learning Teaching Schools Alliance

The Pickwick Learning Teaching School Alliance (PLTSA) is a DfE designated group of schools, leaders and partners committed to providing support and sharing best practice in education and beyond.

We’re using our collective expertise and shared vision to ensure every child, individual and school in our partnership reaches their goals.

Our aims are simple: to improve standards and life experiences for all pupils and adults within our alliance.

Welcome back to the new Academic Year! We started in style, celebrating all things teaching and learning at our conference on 1 September - it was a pleasure to see so many schools and staff from within and beyond the alliance there. We had 3 inspirational keynotes from Fiona Allen, Tom Whittingham and Richard Churches, as well as 27 engaging workshops facilitated by alliance members. Thanks to our 11 superb exhibitors - it really was fantastic to see everything come together and have the chance to network and share best practice. With over 230 delegates attending, we'd like to say a huge thank you to all of you for supporting us. As always our conference is completely free for alliance members and provides an opportunity for school leaders to start the year with motivational messages for their staff teams, as well as looking at education in the wider context. Next year's conference is on Friday 1 September 2017 - please hold this date and use it as your first training day - we would love to see you there!

The summer holidays have arrived and all the children are now off school or are about to be! With massive changes in the Government at the moment, we are watching closely to see what happens across the summer in the wider educational landscape and in particular what this will mean for Teaching Schools. Funding has been extended for another two years and the White Paper and National College clearly sets out the important role that Teaching Schools will play supporting school improvement over the coming years. Have a wonderful summer holiday and very well-earned break - we look forward to working with you in the next academic year. Remember our courses can now be booked online here: http://pltsa.co.uk/cpd Best wishes from everyone in the Pickwick Team. Enjoy the sunshine!
On Thursday 14 July Pickwick Learning was invited to participate in the University of Worcester's annual Festival of Leadership Learning conference.
