Thames South Teaching School Hub

They are one of the 87 Teaching School Hubs designated by the Department for Education, created as centres of excellence for teacher training and development. Through their strong collaborative partnerships, they provide high-quality evidence based professional development to teachers and leaders at all stages of their careers.  As the Hub for Bromley, Bexley and Greenwich they work with national, regional and local partners in order to meet the needs of their schools across all phases and settings.

Teachers are the foundation of the education system. There are no great schools without great teachers.  At Thames South TSH they believe that professional learning is central to school-led improvement and are proud to offer a gold thread of training and development from Initial Teacher Training through to Executive Leadership Qualifications. Through these development opportunities they hope to support in establishing strong professional development cultures within individual schools and across the Hub region, elevating the quality of teaching and ultimately improving pupil outcomes.

They deliver a range of core activities and services to support teachers and leaders across their schools, including an Appropriate Body service to support Early Career Teachers.  They pride themselves on offering personalised, localised development to the schools that they work with.
