Teacher Education

Be the difference...teach!

The Athrofa Professional Learning Partnership

Teacher Education is delivered through the Athrofa Professional Learning Partnership (APLP).

A genuine collaboration between Yr Athrofa: Institute of Education and Humanities and partner schools, the APLP has co-constructed programmes for teachers at all stages in their professional lives – from student-teachers setting out on their career journey, to system leaders managing change.

The APLP employs an innovative network model with which to place student-teachers, with 18 Lead Partner Schools supporting wider networks of Partner Schools. Find out more on these schools, spanning the breadth of South Wales.
