Our Vision and Values

The aim of the TBAP Teaching School Alliance is to develop skilled practitioners and leaders; delivering tried and tested models of school improvement through outstanding CPD and school-to-school support to improve the life chances of learners.


Our vision is to build a strong partnership of schools, PRUs and AP academies to collaborate with each other, share innovative practice, new models of learning and best practice in order to ensure our most vulnerable learners can thrive. We firmly believe that AP, as a sector, has a wealth of knowledge to offer.
