A Professional Learning Partnership involving over 100 schools from across Wales and the University of Wales Trinity Saint David.


The Professional Learning Partnership is co-producing programmes for teachers at all stages in their professional lives and for leaders who are classroom-based, leading institutions or who are system leaders.


These programmes are delivered and assessed in partnership and accredited through the University.

Class with teacher
Our Professional Learning Partnership is well placed to be a major catalyst for change in ITE and professional learning for teachers.


It has a strong combination of expertise, experience and capacity to focus on achieving the changes needed to implement and embed the recommendations of ‘Teaching Tomorrow’s Teachers’ alongside the wider ambitions of the Welsh Government and its agenda for change.


For over three years, there has been substantial innovation in our teacher education programmes. The engagement of school-based professionals in working with the outcomes of research and embedding research within programmes of professional learning has been at the centre of this work.


While this work is firmly rooted in Wales, its reach is outward-looking, having established partnerships with the Universities of Glasgow, Harvard, Stanford and UCL.


Existing programmes can be found here.

Professional Learning Partnership schools that are delivering ITE programmes in 2016-17 and/or 2017-18 and have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to develop and deliver these programmes on behalf of the Professional Learning Partnership:
