EASTA is a hub school for the Accelerate early-career teacher professional development programme

EASTA is delighted to be partnering with NTLEC (Norfolk Teaching and Leadership Excellence Centre) to deliver the Accelerate programme, a collaboration between the Education Development Trust and the Chartered College of Teaching.

Accelerate is a four-term specialist professional development programme, tailor-made for early career teachers – those in the first five years of teaching.

High-quality teaching is the biggest in-school factor in raising the attainment of children, but teachers’ learning curves are at their steepest in the early years of their careers – and this is where Accelerate’s specialist support can help.

Developed with expert teachers and teacher educators, Accelerate provides early career teachers with the essential specialist support they need to rapidly improve their practice to improve outcomes for learners; with Accelerate, early career teachers will quickly become more effective and efficient in the classroom. Built around professional development models that are the most effective in improving teacher practice and student outcomes, Accelerate incorporates expert instructional coaching, deliberate practice, and high-quality, evidence-informed content delivered through a flexible, blended model.
