We provide outstanding education and intervention through our Alternative Provision (AP) Academies, Special Academies and outreach teams who work hard to ensure that every learner reaches their full potential. Our core values of Resilience, Compassion and Innovation are central to our work. The TBAP Trust has sponsored PRUs and Special Schools to become Academies. We also have the capacity to provide school-to-school support from our National and Specialist Leaders of Education via the TBAP Teaching School Alliance (TSA). TBAP has proven to be highly successful at supporting the most vulnerable learners in many ways. We fervently believe in providing support to young people throughout their lives and have established a post-16 offer, TBAP 16-19 Academic AP Academy Free School in addition to our existing educational services, in order to meet all needs.

The TBAP Annual Staff Conference was held at the Emirates Stadium this year, and brought together over 380 members of staff working across three regional hubs.

The day began with a welcome speech by our CEO, Seamus Oates CBE, and continued with keynote speeches from Isabelle Trowler – Chief Social Worker for Children and Families; Ebinehita Iyere – Youth Justice Board; and Mary Myatt – Education adviser, writer and speaker.

The conference gave staff the opportunity to share their experiences of teaching and learning – ideas, research, and good practice. Every single member of staff left the conference feeling inspired and ready to continue supporting vulnerable young people throughout the new academic year ahead.

TBAP TSA Conference 2018

The 4th Annual TSA conference proved to be a successful day with over 90 delegates from as far as Middlesbrough in attendance as well as representatives from the DfE the Ministry of Justice and the press. Kiran Gill gave an inspirational opening keynote explaining how ‘The Difference’ will support mainstream schools to be more inclusive whilst bringing capacity and skilled practitioners to AP. Sean Harford, OfSTED’s National Director for Education, outlined OfSTED’s new, more collaborative approach to inspections. Delegates were relieved to see that OfSTED do not expect predicted grades or P8 from AP and are looking for evidence of high expectations and useful assessment data instead. Robert Halfon MP, chair of the Education Select Committee’s enquiry into AP, outlined his findings so far and was particularly interested in learning more about our post-16 provision which he described as ‘rare’ and wanted to see more of the same. Finally, we had a range of excellent and practical workshops which all received excellent feedback from delegates. Thank you to Karen Thomson, Sam Rigby-White, Steff Bond, Krishna Purbhoo, Angela Tempany, Patricia Day, Peter Fellows, Rebecca Mead and Brenda McHugh (Anna Freud Centre) - please feel free to review their slides and contact us here at TBAP TSA if you would like further information.
