Castleman Learning Network

Improving education across Dorset

Our members

Coming together to be one body of excellence in education to support others passionate about teaching.


Our teaching schools have many opportunities to improve the education and teaching quality of your school and help others in the Poole TSA network improve.

Teaching schools have an important role to play in the education system. They are centres of excellence, co-ordinating and delivering high quality school-based training, providing school-to-school support to spread excellent practice, particularly to schools that need it most and they help provide evidence-based professional and leadership development for teachers and leaders across our network.
