Initial Teacher Education

The Bishop of Llandaff is a Lead Partner School within The Athrofa Professional Learning Partnership (APLP). This is a partnership of schools and Yr Athrofa working together to produce and deliver programmes of professional learning for initial teacher education and the wider education workforce.

The partnership will exist between 2019 and 2022 in the first instance and is designed to provide high quality training routes for the next generation of primary and secondary teachers in Wales. Our partner schools include Caedraw Primary School, Merthyr Tydfil; Cyfartha Park, Merthyr Tydfil; Lewis Boys' School, Pengam; Lewis Girls' School, Ystrad Mynach; Pentrebane Primary School, Cardiff; St Joseph's Catholic Primary School, Penarth and Whitchurch Primary School, Cardiff.

The purpose of the partnership is

  • To develop and model a genuinely collaborative approach to ITE and professional learning in Wales;
  • To contribute to the national agenda for education improvement by building capacity through initial teacher education (ITE) and professional learning for the wider education workforce;
  • To deliver a portfolio of ITE and professional learning programmes in order to develop teaching professionals who meet the professional standards required to achieve Qualified Teacher Status; are ready to deliver the new curriculum and enable children and young people to fulfil the four purposes of the Curriculum for Wales through being evidence-based practitioners; understand the relationship between intellectual and experiential knowledge and capable of leading classroom and school-based inquiry that is focused on positive impact for learners; are transformative teachers who embody Yr Athrofa APLP model of transformative learning; and
  • To develop and provide a continuum of meaningful and relevant professional learning opportunities for educational professionals.

Across the partnership of schools, we will provide training for up to 30 trainee teachers each placement.
