Our Alliance Partners

The Dallam Teaching Alliance provides quality teacher training across South Cumbria.

We have an excellent working relationship with our partner schools forged over many years. As well as teacher training we collaborate in areas such as professional development, school improvement and subject networking, supporting colleagues throughout all stages of their career. This collaborative approach is key to the success of our School Direct programme. Equally, we have strong networks with other non-member secondary schools and have been successful in securing placement opportunities from outside the alliance.
