Our remit and purpose

Our teaching school hubs are united by a common call to develop great teachers, great school leaders and more great schools in Barnsley, Doncaster, Selby and Wakefield. We will recruit, train and retain the best. The economic future prosperity of our communities is inextricably linked to children’s aspirations and the quality of their education.


Together, we understand the fundamental role of school workforce development. The hubs will provide trainees and early career teachers with the best possible start to their careers. As well as ensuring that ECTs receive their statutory entitlements, ECTs will be fairly and consistently assessed through our role as an Appropriate Body. The NPQs will offer the best possible support and development to teachers and leaders wanting to expand their knowledge and skills. We will mobilise resources to improve schools, sharing our efficacious approaches to improvement through teacher and leader development. Our coherent, comprehensive needs-based CPD strategy will take cognisance of local context and address our region’s priorities. Ultimately, our aim is to unite all of the schools in our hub areas and ensure that everyone enjoys access to world-class professional development.


The high-quality work we do will be done on behalf of us all.  Collectively, we have the capacity, expertise, and talent in our schools, academies and trusts to transform education for the children in our region.

Jo Twiby, Executive Director of Teaching School Hubs
