STEP is the newly designated Teaching School Hub for Shropshire and Telford, one of only 87 Teaching School Hubs announced in February 2021 by The Department for Education. 

STEP is working in partnership with our local schools to support Initial Teacher Training, deliver the new Early Career Framework for new Teachers and their mentors, act as an appropriate body under the new statutory changes, and offer the new suite of National Professional Qualifications for leaders, as well as developing and signposting research informed CPD to meet local needs.

In STEP’s first year they have worked with 153 local schools and trained 103 new teachers, 160 leaders on the National Professional Qualifications . Furthermore, they have supported 179 ECTs and 160 mentors with the Early Careers Framework and up skilled over 50 school colleagues on its mental health programmes and NASENCO Awards

The Alliance of Leading Learning Continues have a crucial role in the activities of STEP, ensuring confidence that experienced, local experts are delivering a one-stop service for schools in the Shropshire and Telford area.
