Great teachers help create great students and great schools. Research shows that an inspiring and informed teacher is the most important factor in improving student outcomes. It is critical therefore for schools and the education system to prioritise initial teacher education as well as ongoing professional learning for experienced teachers.
The Kite TSA is committed to ensuring that professional learning is an enjoyable and inspiring activity for all its members and recognises that while professional learning takes many forms it is optimised where teachers are open-minded, reflective, take responsibility for their own development and view their professional learning journey as an ongoing process throughout their teaching career.
The Kite TSA works in partnership with the other Teaching School Alliances and the Local Authority to offer a broad range of professional learning opportunities. In addition to this website The Kite TSA communicates its professional learning offer which includes informal skills shares, training courses and conferences through a half-termly newsletter (click here to subscribe)
