Lincolnshire Teaching School Alliance

About LTSA

The Lincolnshire Teaching School Alliance (LTSA) is an alliance of  secondary schools across Lincolnshire who work together collaboratively in improving outcomes for students. LTSA was accredited by the NCTL and commenced operation in 2013. 

Initial Teacher Training:

LTSA has a major focus on the recruitment and training of new teachers through its SCITT programme.


LTSA aims to provide a career development structure to ensure that teachers are supported at each stage of their career. Our ethos is one in which all schools contribute to the portfolio of training opportunities for the mutual benefit of all.

We offer a wide range of CPD courses and events, details of which can be found on our CPD page.

School to School:

LTSA places a strong focus on the importance of providing for the needs of schools and individuals in terms of specific face-to-face support. The focus for the alliance is on the continued improvement of secondary education in Lincolnshire. As such, we work closely with our partners to improve student outcomes through creative and sustainable means. Please see further details on the School to School page.

Science Learning Partnership:

LTSA coordinates and manges the Lincolnshire Science Learning Partnership (SLP), which provides quality, subject-specific continuous professional development (CPD) for primary and secondayr schools in the area. It is a part of a network of SLPs and other support for schools that is managed by STEM Learning. For further details please take a look at our SLP page.

Rooted in Reading is a flexible reading for pleasure promotion programme. It encourages students of all ages, from pre-school to A level, to read widely and to spend a little time reflecting on what they have gained from their reading. For further details or to order please see our RiR page.
