BEST Teaching School

BEST Teaching School delivers a comprehensive school improvement package to nearly 150 schools across the area, and the Bedfordshire Schools Training Partnership, which provides school-centred initial teacher training (SCITT) courses for both Primary and Secondary phases.

Teaching schools are strong schools led by strong leaders that work with others to provide high-quality training, development and support to new and experienced school staff. CBTSP as part of BEST is a centre of excellence, committed to improving outcomes for all pupils. 

For over four years the Teaching School has carried out a wide range of educational services and continues to grow as an organisation. During 2015/16 the number of courses and programmes available to colleagues was in excess of 230 across all phases and School to School support has been extensive.
