Atlas aims to develop an effective and sustainable alliance that will deliver improved outcomes for young people.
It will broker and/or provide opportunities for staff within the alliance to access professional learning in the areas of pedagogy, leadership, school improvement and academic research. It will ensure the supply of exceptional new teachers into the profession through effective initial teacher training (ITT).
Atlas will broker school-to-school support providing, where appropriate, the additional capacity required to allow the school to become successful. It will develop succession planning models to ensure that schools within the alliance can continue to be effectively led and managed. Atlas aims to engage with both internal and external partners to adopt and to promote evidence based research practice.
