Learn-AT Professional, formerly Learn-AT Teaching School, works with teachers, leaders and schools both locally and nationally in different strands of school improvement and professional development.
Our work is based on two underlying principles, professional learning and professional collaboration. Through our work with strategic partners at the University of Leicester, the Teacher Development Trust and the Church of England Foundation for Educational Leadership, we provide professional learning pathways including Initial Teacher Training and the new National Professional Qualifications. Equally important is our approach of professional collaboration, through our networks and iterative programmes on curriculum design, we work with school leaders to learn together from a rich evidence based supported by Learn-AT Associate Research School.
Learn-AT Professional is part of Learn Academies Trust, a multi-academy trust of eleven primary schools in Leicestershire who each contribute to the provision offered by Learn-AT Professional:
- Church Langton CE Primary School
- Great Bowden CE Academy
- Meadowdale Primary School
- Ridgeway Primary Academy
- Lubenham All Saints CE Primary School
- St Andrews CE Primary School, North Kilworth
- Market Harborough CE Primary School
- Husbands Bosworth CEPrimary School
- Red Hill Field Primary School
- Blaby Stokes CE Primary School
- South Kilworth CE Primary School
We have a history of working collaboratively within a cluster of schools as well as through many partnership projects.
Learn-AT Professional builds on the unique strengths of each of its founding partners. Church Langton has a well-established and proven track record in initial teacher training provision, working alongside the University of Leicester. The partner primary schools can offer support to deliver high quality teaching, learning and leadership development and in particular a focus on the use of research to inform school improvement.
We offer a continuously evolving professional development programme specifically to deliver ‘exceptional' quality in teaching. We are particularly proud of our professional network learning opportunities which form part of our offer to schools.
