Our Role and Function

Our Role and Function

The Teaching School Hubs Council (TSHC) are supporters, advocators, and facilitators for the national network of teaching school hubs in England.

Led by education leaders from across the country, our work empowers the development of teaching professionals, further enhancing their capacity to provide a great education for every pupil, regardless of their background.

● We support and challenge teaching school hubs to give them the skills they need to flourish independently
● We advocate for and on behalf of the Teaching School Hubs, engaging with and advising the Department for Education (DfE) on national policy
● We facilitate networking and collaboration between the Teaching School Hubs (TSH) to enable the sharing and development of best practice.

The Teaching School Hubs Council members have been appointed by DfE ministers through either application or co-option. Council members are supported in the delivery of the two functions by a small central executive team made up of six roles.

“We believe that Teaching School Hubs will strengthen system leadership and build on the excellent work that is already taking place in many parts of the country. They will create further capacity. This will ensure there is more robust, collaborative provision to meet any given local need. In many regions this way of working is already taking place to good effect. This policy recognises the success of such practice.”
