The Greet Teaching School Alliance
The Greet Teaching School Alliance was Birmingham’s first primary teaching school, designated in September 2011 as part of the first national cohort of just 35 primary schools. Our designation has a clear focus on the support and development of schools in inner city Birmingham. Working collaboratively for the benefit of all, we are all committed to the best possible achievement for our children and staff and we set expectations high so that community aspirations can be raised.
We offer a bespoke School Direct PGCE teacher training programme, continually developed and refined in response to feedback from previous cohorts. Our trainees benefit from a high quality programme of support and training delivered by expert practitioners from our schools and University specialists, designed to equip them with the skills, knowledge and practice to become excellent teachers in our inner-city schools.
We work across Birmingham, with particular focus on inner-city Birmingham.
