Our Key Services

Quality training makes quality teachers and ITT is a key element to our TSA. Implementing the national initiatives for teachers to train for longer in a school environment, we offer different styles of training depending on the needs of the individual.

Forward Together continually demonstrates a commitment to NQT and ongoing teacher training, ensuring career development across all areas. Specific training needs vary and we structure courses to not only meet national requirements but to suit the demands of the alliance.

Forward Together’s experienced group of Specialist Leaders of Education, with cross-phase expertise from Early Years through to Further Education, is deployed to schools throughout Wigan, Leigh and the wider North West in need of support, guidance or fresh ideas.

Forward Together, with schools both within our alliance and from further afield, helps schools to spot talent and ensures that training opportunities are available for those with a desire to improve and further their careers.

The Forward Together TSA is built on a foundation of professional partnerships and supporting schools to help them attain greater outcomes for their children. Teachers and leaders in the alliance are encouraged to move around schools and share their own methods for success.

Forward Together is working with the University of Manchester on projects to develop positive partnerships between teaching schools and alliance schools. The study reviews the whole spectrum of partnership working with the central theme of moving schools from ‘Good’ to ‘Outstanding’.

Our School Direct programme, delivered in partnership with the University of Cumbria, gives your teaching career a great start. We’re a National Teaching School, rated Outstanding and led by a National Leader of Education, specialising in the training and mentoring of student teachers and newly-qualified teachers.

Forward Together is pleased to deliver bespoke, tailored CPD training that meets the needs of your school and teaching team. Courses are designed for your staff and your school, customised to suit your specific needs and allowing you to choose when and where you complete the programme.

It’s not always practical to release teaching or support staff, especially where you want your wider team to benefit from professional training. All of our CPD and training programmes can be delivered onsite in your school, allowing your staff to attend together at a time and a place that suits you all.

Forward Together’s ‘Sharing Excellence’ School Visit & Consultation package allows those who wish to see our Teaching Schools, Tyldesley Primary School and Hawkley Hall High School, in action, to tour the school, speak to our leaders and key personnel one-to-one and observe lessons as required.
