Accelerate is being led by the Education Development Trust in partnership with the Chartered College of Teaching and is being funded by the DfE’s Teaching and Leadership Innovation Fund. It will run over four terms, starting early spring 2019 and uses a flexible blended learning approach including a residential training event, local workshops, expert instructional coaching, in-school mentoring and online training materials, tailored to different subject areas and phases.
