Beacon Partnership CTeach

Beacon Academy Teaching School is proud to be working within Beacon Partnership, alongside the Sussex Teaching School Alliances, St Mark’s Teaching School Alliance, Rother Teaching School Alliance, University of Sussex and East Sussex County Council.

Beacon Partnership has been selected by the Chartered College of Teaching, the professional body for teaching, to deliver the prestigious Chartered Teacher (CTeach) Programme in East and West Sussex, Kent and Brighton and Hove and is now recruiting participants to apply to join the launch of the next cohort.

Based on similar programmes around the world, the CTeach Programme celebrates the excellent teaching and practice occurring in classrooms every single day and is designed to further the expertise of experienced practitioners.

Important update (March 2020):

Following the recent government guidance relating to COVID-19 and resulting school closures, we have agreed with the Chartered College of Teaching that the start date for the Beacon Partnership CTeach programme will be moved to September 2020.

We have therefore extended the deadline for applications to Thursday 25 June 2020 and would encourage anyone considering applying to get in touch with us via If you’ve already applied, you will have already been contacted by email.

We are currently reviewing which elements of the course could be completed online, if a face-to-face event is not possible and we will update the course programme details as soon as this is confirmed. Of course, we will continue to monitor the situation and review our plans as necessary in light of updated government guidance.

We look forward to going ahead with the programme and to receiving additional applications from participants, as well as from potential mentors and assessors.
