About Us

The Community Academies Trust Institute of Education (IOE) is our trust centre for professional development and school improvement. It provides resources and support for all aspects of staff professional development and school improvement support for the schools in our trust and beyond.

The IoE is committed to encouraging the talent that exists within our schools to pursue their own professional development and to play their part in a self-improving school system.  The IoE plays an active role in leading and coordinating support across our schools and promoting collaborative working through our professional networks and expert groups.

The IOE also plays a crucial role in the future of our education system, training and developing the next generation of teachers, aiming to work in partnership with schools across our regions to secure the best quality teaching and learning for our young people to flourish.
