ABOUT South Glos TSA

About the South Glos Training and Support Alliance

The South Glos Training and Support Alliance is a partnership of schools who are passionate about collaboration and school improvement.

The strategic partners consist of like-minded schools, all of the whom have their own strengths and areas of specialism, offering a range of support to others.

The TSA is passionate about helping primary schools achieve the best possible outcomes for all of their pupils. It is our vision that all children within our family and alliance will have a first-class, innovative education.

The Training and Support Alliance plays a role in school improvement in an increasingly school led system in 3 main areas:

  • training new entrants to the profession (School Direct)

  • continuing professional and leadership development (CPD)

  • school to school support (S2S)

We also 

  • identify and develop practitioners with leadership potential

  • offer specialist leaders of education (SLE’s) across the region

  • promote research and development in teaching and learning and to develop school based research

Working in collaborative partnerships, sharing effective practice and developing collective school improvement systems are the approaches South Glos TSA seeks to promote. South Glos TSA hopes to provide a vehicle for the promotion and development of what is already working well and could be shared more widely, as well as a forum for new collaborations to develop. We seek to complement the work of the Boolean Maths Hub, the Mangotsfield Primary English Hub as well the work of the new Teaching School Hubs.
