The Oxford Education Deanery has formed strong partnerships with Oxfordshire Strategic Schools Partnership Board and Oxfordshire Teaching Schools Alliance.
Oxfordshire Strategic Schools Partnership Board
The Oxford Education Deanery is a member of the Oxfordshire Strategic Schools Partnership Board (SSPB), which seeks to bring together all the local stakeholders committed to achieving the best outcomes for all young people.
We work closely with other members of the Board on specific projects, such as our investigation into the Recruitment and Retention of NQTs in Oxfordshire. This was commissioned by the SSPB, funded by the local authority (Oxfordshire County Council) and carried out by the University Department of Education in collaboration with Oxford Brookes University.
Oxfordshire Teaching Schools Alliance
We are also a strategic partner of the Oxfordshire Teaching Schools Alliance and work with them in various ways. These include providing an Induction programme for secondary NQTs (administered by OTSA) and hosting events organised by OTSA as a local hub of the Chartered College of Teaching.
We are very pleased to support the work of the Chartered College, particularly in its promotion of teachers’ research engagement and have encouraged teachers working with us through the Action Research Fellowship scheme and the Enhanced Masters to share their work through the College’s research journal Impact.
