What is the role of a Professional Learning Hub?
“To engage with the milestones of the professional learning continuum regarding learning and teaching and leadership”

Areas of focus:
  • Initial Teacher Education (ITE) pedagogy programme  delivered in lead schools, badged by higher education institutes (HEI)
  • NQT induction programme
  • Developing/refining practice
  • Future middle and senior leaders
  • Headteacher programmes
  • Core learning and teaching programmes
  • Core whole school improvement programmes
  • Strengthening links with Donaldson’s Pioneers

These schools will, as now, continue to develop the New Deal for professional learning, providing programmes of externally evaluated professional learning for staff at all levels of the system.  In addition they will increasingly work with HEIs to offer initial teacher training components and accredited leadership programmes which have been designed and delivered with Central South teams.  
Professional learning hubs will work together to identify and learn from effective models of professional learning, or CPD systems in place across the region including engaging with SIGs and challenge advisers about what is working best and what is needed. They will share what is working for all schools and signposting schools that are very effective at developing teachers.   
They will complete action research models which share effective practice across the region and construct a regional understanding of effective teaching and leadership practice for use by all schools.
