Our Vision and Values

Our vision

Our aim is that our children attend schools with high-quality teachers and leaders in all phases.

Our children deserve high-quality education.

We offer high-quality training and professional development to support teachers and leaders at every stage of their career with the aim of raising teaching standards and contributing significantly to school improvement.

We support schools in Cambridgeshire & Peterborough with the Early Career Framework (ECF), National Professional Qualifications (NPQ), Initial Teacher Training (ITT), Appropriate Body Services (AB), and Continuous Professional Development (CPD).

Our values

How we achieve this:

By being a centre of excellence, working collaboratively through strong, supportive partnerships which promote and value fairness, equality, inclusion and diversity.

The Nolan Principles and The Framework for Ethical Leadership in Education are at the centre of all we do.

The Golden Thread

Teaching Schools have been designated by the Department for Education to focus mainly on the 'golden thread' of Initial Teacher Training, Early Career Framework and National Professional Qualifications. The thread provides training for teachers from the very start where they are training to teach right up to Executive Headship.

Initial Teacher Training 

The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Teaching School Hub works closely with 3 partner SCITTs to deliver Initial Teacher Training.

The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Appropriate Body Service monitors assessments and support of ECTs to ensure they receive their statutory entitlements.

Early Career Framework

The Hub delivers the Early Career Framework to early career teachers across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough working with Lead Partner Teach First from September 2024.
