“We want Bradford to be the first choice career destination for talented individuals who want to train or build a career as a teacher, so we’ve worked hard with current headteachers and leaders of education to understand what’s required to make us really stand out above the rest.

“Our focus is on supporting the teachers of today, growing the next generation of educators and really celebrating the depth and richness of our professional community.”

Bradford sets out plans to be top of the class for teaching

Pioneering professional development programme unveiled at schools summit

An eight-month series of professional development events designed to make Bradford the best place in the country to teach and learn was unveiled today at Margaret McMillan Tower, the offices of Bradford Council.

The high profile programme features conferences, debates, performances and awards. It culminates with the first ever Bradford Education Festival in June 2020.

Leaders from the city’s schools were on hand at the launch to hear details of the programme, which has been curated by Bradford for Teaching, a school-led campaign to attract the most talented teachers to the city.

Kate Walter, Director of the Northern Lights Teaching School and Bradford for Teaching Project Director, explained: “This is the most comprehensive series of development and celebration events ever put together in Bradford and it represents a huge investment in existing and potential teachers.”

“We want Bradford to be the first choice career destination for talented individuals who want to train or build a career as a teacher, so we’ve worked hard with current headteachers and leaders of education to understand what’s required to make us really stand out above the rest.

“Our focus is on supporting the teachers of today, growing the next generation of educators and really celebrating the depth and richness of our professional community.”

The calendar of events for Autumn and Spring includes teaching internships, recruitment and retention summits, tailored resources for teachers, financial incentives, lectures and award ceremonies.

The programme culminates with a major week-long education festival from 15th-19th June, which will feature a pupil art exhibition, a TedX youth event, leaders debates and Bradford Sings – a major celebration event that will bring school choirs together for a one-off performance in St Georges Hall.


Schools are being urged to sign up now to be part of the Bradford Education Festival. Full details and information of how to apply can be found at https://www.bradfordeducation.org
