Red Kite Teacher Training

We are a DfE accredited Teaching School Hub, with a mission to support high quality teacher development across our region, for teachers at all stages of their career.

Red Kite Teaching School Hub

We are a partnership of Yorkshire schools across all phases of education, from inner city locations and rural contexts, working together to share skills, experience, talent and capacity to help improve the learning and achievement of the young people in our communities as we help each other flourish.

Red Kite Alliance

Our aim is to be “The Employer of Choice” to attract, retain and reward the very best colleagues so that ultimately our schools, teams and all our children have the very best experience and outcomes.

Red Kite Careers

As well as delivering on the DfE’s priorities for ITT and specific approved programmes we also provide training and other services to meet the wider needs of schools. This includes specific work around SEND, Equalities and Diversity and opportunities for the many staff in our schools who are not teachers but are vital to delivering education and support to children and families.
