About Us

The Vantage Teaching School Hub is a professional community of regional, national and international partners who provide training and development at all stages of your career in education.

At the heart of this partnership are the seven original East Riding & Hull Teaching Schools. Their representation from across the regional area provides the vantage point from which we map provision and training to meet the needs of the education workforce. This partnership and vantage point is reflected in our brand identity.

We are one of eighty-seven Teaching School Hubs nationally designated by the Department for Education (DfE) from September 2021 following a successful application by St Mary’s College who are accountable to the DfE for the Hub’s performance. Schools who were eligible to apply for Teaching School Hub status had to demonstrate a strong track record of high achievement for all groups of pupils over time.

The Vantage Teaching School Hub will play a central role in the training and development of teachers throughout their career by providing evidence-based programmes and qualifications which follow the ‘golden thread’ of core content from Initial Teacher Training to National Professional Leadership Qualifications.

The Vantage Teaching School Hub will help to support teachers to progress through whichever career pathway they choose and will support the development of teachers working in all phases/types of school. Crucially, through our professional community we will ensure the core content is brought to life through deep, contextual understanding so that it speaks to teachers and leaders’ experiences across the region.

Together we will deliver the following core activities which make up the professional development entitlement of all teachers:

  • Delivery of the Early Career Framework (ECF);
  • Delivery of National Professional Qualifications (NPQs);
  • Delivery of Initial teacher training (ITT);
  • Providing Appropriate Body (AB) services for Early Career Teachers;
  • Other Continuous Professional Development (CPD).
