Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS - STU­ART GREER

ASCHOOL has been cho­sen to help train the next gen­er­a­tion of teach­ers.

All Hallows Catholic Col­lege has been se­lected to be­come a Na­tional Teach­ing School, which take a lead­ing role in re­cruit­ing and train­ing new en­trants to the pro­fes­sion.

The role in­cludes iden­ti­fy­ing and de­vel­op­ing po­ten­tial lead­ers of the fu­ture, and sup­port­ing other schools to raise stan­dards of teach­ing.

The school, one of 700 Na­tional Teach­ing Schools, will now es­tab­lish a new partnership called the Romero Teach­ing Schools Alli- ance to link in with other schools.

Prin­ci­pal Tony Billings said: “We al­ready have a strong track record in train­ing teach­ers and pro­vid­ing school-toschool sup­port and this for­mal recog­ni­tion will help us to be more ef­fec­tive and as­sist more schools in dio­cese and co-op­er­a­tive net­works.

“We are very much a school which takes a full part in de­vel­op­ing the ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem to help all chil­dren be­come the best per­son they can be and achieve their best.”

Roger Pope, chair­man of the Na­tional Col­lege for Teach­ing and Lead­er­ship, said: “Teach­ing schools have shown them­selves to be at the heart of school im­prove­ment.”
