Welcome to Shropshire and Telford Education Partnership (STEP) – an inclusive partnership comprising of Salop Teaching Partnership (STP), the lead school SALOP Teaching School Alliance, The Alliance of Leading Learning (ALL) Shropshire Primary Partnership (SPP) and Severn Training and Schools Alliance (STSA) – representing all phases and contexts, including Special and Alternative Provisions, across Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin.
We are driven by our intent to secure firm foundations in a challenging educational landscape and support the professional journey of all our colleagues. This may be those studying at PGCE and QTS, those new to teaching and embarking on the ECF, our exemplary educational leaders of the future taking an NPQ or a school looking for high quality professional development for any of their staff. Quite simply we want to ensure the right expertise exists to enhance a self-improving system and influence learners, leaders and schools to drive continuous improvement.
STEP has well-established local in-depth knowledge which means we will remain at the forefront of developing the “golden thread” of education through the full offer of our programmes. We will continue to harness our joint and local expertise and develop as a Teaching School Hub- improving the outcomes and ensuring life-changing impact for all the children and young people we work with.
Make the first step and join us for high quality support on your professional journey, whatever the stage of your career.
