Welcome to our website
In 2014, outstanding Sheffield teaching schools Tapton and King Ecgbert together became the lead schools of Escafeld TSA.  In conjunction with our large group of primary and secondary partner schools, we offer an exciting range of opportunities for both existing and aspiring teachers.
Escafeld Teaching School Alliance runs CPD training courses for teachers at every level of their career plus we help to research and develop school improvement tools designed to create positive outcomes for children's education. 
For graduates yet to embark on a future in teaching, our School Direct Initial Teacher Training programme provides the opportunity to learn from inspiring professionals in a diverse range of schools across Sheffield.  We can offer a broad range of subjects leading to either a PGCE or a PGDE, accredited by Sheffield Hallam University or the University of Sheffield.
We hope that you will take a few moments to browse our website and find out more about what we have to offer.
