Teaching Alliances


Joseph Chamberlain College is a key member of Bishop Challoner Catholic College’s Teaching School Alliance (TSA). The TSA is a partnership of 43 schools from around the West Midlands, with the majority located in the Birmingham area, and others throughout Dudley, Solihull, Walsall and Worcestershire. Of all of these educational institutions, we are the only sixth form college to be a member.

The Alliance is a learning community that share ideas and discuss education, providing and delivering high quality integrated programmes for school-led improvement.

Together, we work hard to focus on the ‘Big Six’ areas of development:

• Initial Teacher Training
• Continuing Professional Development
• Leadership Development and Succession Planning
• School to School Support
• Specialist Leaders of Education
• Research and Development
