14/09/2017 Update: IfT launches Transforming Teaching programme

Transforming Teaching is a whole school programme for improving teaching, retention and career progression. It is based on robust evidence; sustained over time; and delivered by expert teacher educators in schools where the need is greatest.

The programme is supported and funded by The Department for Education.

We work with teachers, leaders of teacher development and schools leaders to build and deliver a programme that, as well as delivering real outcomes for pupils, brings real value to teachers and their careers. The programme provides ongoing, bespoke support and training from our faculty of expert teacher educators over a 2-3 year period, and engages with staff at all levels to enact long lasting, sustainable change and impact in their school.

More information on Transforming Teaching will be available following our official launch in October.

Please register your interest below if you or your school are interested to find out more.
