About Us

High quality classroom practice and leadership are central to sustained school improvement. ETC offers learning opportunities for colleagues to positively influence educational change and improve outcomes for children and young people.

ETC provides an infrastructure which connects staff across schools to learn with and from other in innovative and creative ways. Learning takes many forms, for example: workshops, formal programmes, peer reviews, moderation and practitioner-led enquiry.

The Alliance works with leaders in schools to recruit high quality people into the profession and to train and develop colleagues at each stage of their career. Progression and career development within an Alliance structure brings benefits to staff who wish to continue to invest in their own learning.

Public value statement

Our ambition is for a committed, collaborative learning community where children, young people and adults thrive, achieve and contribute. All learners will have confidence and motivation to support their communities and shape their futures built on common values.

ETC will lead and sustain a constituency which will have a profound measurable improvement on the aspirations, achievements and fulfilment of 20,000 pupils and 1,400 staff. This will be achieved by collaboratively developing a highly skilled and motivated workforce, thereby transforming the learning of our pupils.

Our collective responsibility is for us to work towards all schools within the Alliance being good or outstanding.
