TLA resources

Welcome to the Teacher Learning Academy

Since the Government announced its intention to abolish the GTC, we have been working to ensure the rich resources and approach of the TLA remain available to all teachers in England.

The Cathedrals Group of universities and university colleges has established a national TLA consortium . For more information about the new Teaching and Learning Academy visit the TLA website

Further information is available from TLA Updates.

Resources that currently support teacher enquiry will remain on the GTC website until they have been relocated.

GTC publications about the TLA are also available from the link below.
