Dedicated to the support and development of teachers in Sefton, Knowsley and St Helens


Welcome to the Rainbow Teaching School Hub. We provide support to schools and trusts across the Sefton, St Helens and Knowsley region. Our main aim is to promote the recruitment and retention of great teachers into the profession through delivering high quality teacher developments programmes to teachers, leaders and support staff. We will deliver the new ECF framework, which will underpin an ongoing development journey, via the newly reformed National Professional Qualification (NPQ) programmes and targeted CPD provision. Identification of needs will enable specific provision to be implemented and evaluation of impact will measure effectiveness, to inform ongoing support. We will work closely with our partners in this area to ensure their needs are met.

Collaborative working is the heart of what we do, and we have established partnerships with colleagues across all phases and sectors in the region. As the central point, we aim to have quality and consistency running through the golden thread of ITT, ECF, CPD and Leadership. Through our partnerships we are harnessing the current expertise and capacity in the system, to ensure a sustainable plan to develop leaders and teachers, to achieve the best outcomes for children in the local area.
