Who we are

Northamptonshire Teaching School Hub was designated by the DfE as a centre of excellence for teacher development in Northamptonshire with Brooke Weston Academy named as the lead school. Both Northamptonshire Teaching School Hub and Brooke Weston Academy are part of the Brooke Weston Trust (BWT) family.

Through collaboration and partnership with the best of national providers, local partners, research school and curriculum hubs, Northamptonshire Teaching School Hub delivers core functions to support schools and trusts to invest in their workforce to grow, recruit, develop and retain the very best teachers, support staff and leaders across the golden thread of teacher development.

DfE designation as a Centre of Excellence for teacher development

Teaching Schools Hubs are a national network of 87 school-led centres of excellence. As part of the DfE's world-class teacher development system, teaching school hubs are transforming the training and support received by teachers at every stage of their career. The teacher development reforms create a 'golden thread' of high-quality evidence underpinning the support, training and development available through the entirety of a teacher's career.
