Unity Teaching School Hub is the DfE designated Teaching School Hub for EENEL8 area (Forest Heath, St Edmundsbury, Mid-Suffolk and Suffolk Coastal). We are a collaborative organisation, harnessing the valued contributions of trusted partners. We commit to providing all schools in the area excellence in professional learning to grow and nurture great staff, teachers and leaders, ensuring every pupil, regardless of their background experiences a great education. Our priority programmes include:

  • the Early Career Teacher Programme: in partnership with Ambition Institute
  • the brand-new National Professional Qualifications (NPQs): in partnership with both the Teacher Development Trust and The Church of England

We support the work of school centred initial teacher training within the schools of our area, working closely with designated SCITTs to promote and coordinate initial teacher training.

Our wider evidence-informed professional learning programmes draw on expertise from within and beyond our area, neighbouring Teaching School Hubs and nationally recognised organisations.
