The Royal Greenwich Teaching School Alliance has a pool of talented and skilled practitioners who can make a difference to children’s learning in your school.

You can call upon our:

Lead Practitioners (LPs): outstanding members of staff who lead practice and learning in and across schools. Our Lead Practitioners can help your school improve practice by working alongside individual members of staff or small groups of teachers for defined periods of time.

Advanced Skills Teachers (ASTs): excellent teachers who achieve the very highest standards of classroom practice and can share their skills and experience with other teachers. Our ASTs will support and work alongside colleagues to radically improve their classroom practice.

Specialist Leaders in Education (SLEs): outstanding middle or senior leaders who are skilled in supporting individuals or teams in similar positions in other schools. They understand what outstanding leadership practice looks like in their area and will help others achieve this in their context.

Our guarantee

All school-to-school work is quality assured and outcomes of school-to-school support will be measured against a clear base line and impact statements. When we work with you we enter a partnership with you, outlining how we will work for the duration of the project and how goals will be measured.


There will usually be no charge for sending your teachers to observe a lesson provided by a Lead Practitioner in their own classroom. The daily rate for an LP or AST to work in your school is £250. The daily rate for an SLE is £350 - with the possibility of negotiation for work undertaken over a period of time.

All work undertaken by the RGTSA will be customised to meet your specific needs in your time frame.
