The ground-breaking initiative is the first of its kind across the country, and will provide a three-year investment programme in the city’s schools.
The new partnership, between Liverpool City Council and education charity Ambition Institute, will see 400 teachers and school leaders across 80 schools benefit from intensive training and support.
It builds on the success of the Education Improvement Board, which prioritised recruiting, developing, supporting and retaining the best teachers and leaders.
Schools in the city will benefit from three areas of support:
The investment is aimed at developing a community of expert teachers working right across the authority, supported by school leaders who can shape culture, curriculum and continuous professional development.
The funding aims to support pupil outcomes in the city and improve attainment, particularly for pupils who from vulnerable families. Currently 30 per cent of pupils in Liverpool are in receipt of free school meals and recent evidence shows that students from disadvantaged backgrounds are on average 22 months behind non-disadvantaged students in Liverpool.
“This is a trailblazing partnership to deliver bespoke training and development to the city’s legion of educators. Not only are we the first local authority in England to implement this package of support, we’re also making sure it has a legacy. By training teachers to become high-quality teacher educators, we are setting ourselves up for a future of continued improvement.”
The training will be provided by education charity Ambition Institute, which has a long legacy of supporting teachers and leaders working in disadvantaged communities. The initiative was spearheaded by National Partnerships Director Raksha Pattni who was given a Northern Power Women award for her work in education in 2020.
She said: “A great teacher changes the future every day. Especially for children who’ve had a tough start in life, a teacher can be the critical factor in their success. The sad truth is that too many children from disadvantaged backgrounds fall behind their classmates. The gap between them grows throughout their school career, so that by the time they leave secondary school, they’re three times less likely to end up in employment, education or training.
“The quality of teaching is by far the biggest factor within schools that makes a difference to what these children achieve – three times greater than the impact of any other action a school can take.
“This initiative is the first of its kind in any local authority. We’re honoured to work with Liverpool to launch this in-depth support for schools and looking forward to supporting teachers and leaders across the city.”
