About Us

Welcome to Calderdale and Kirklees Teaching School Hub.

We are immensely proud to be the designated Teaching School Hub for Calderdale and Kirklees, connecting with and inspiring teachers and leaders in the region. 

We provide the region's teachers and leaders with high quality professional development for all stages of their teaching career.

We recruit and train new teachers to the profession through our outstanding Initial Teacher Training (ITT) programme and provide support, guidance and training to early career teachers through the delivery of the Early Careers Framework (ECF). Our Appropriate Body (AB) service ensures that all early career teachers receive their statutory entitlements. 

Our full suite of specialist and leadership National Professional Qualifications (NPQs) provide experienced teachers and leaders with further career development. Our links with local curriculum hubs, research schools and other providers also provide continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities for all.

We work in partnership with, and build on the expertise of our strategic partners and local hubs to deliver professional development and support to all phases of schools and teachers and leaders in the region. 

Thank you for your interest in Calderdale and Kirklees Teaching School Hub. Whether you are looking to develop your training career through our programme offer, or wishing to partner with us, we look forward to working with you. 

Lucy Sykes, Director of Calderdale and Kirklees Teaching School Hub
