Pen Green TSA


Established in 2014, the Pen Green Teaching School works alongside the integrated children's centre, nursery school, research and training base.   Located in Corby, Northamptonshire, a former steel works town with a rapidly rising though disadvantaged population.  We offer high quality early years education and care, adult education, family support, health services, research and development, a range of short courses and higher education courses from foundation degree to PhD.  The research base was established in 1996 to promote practitioner research in the early years.  It now also has a strong publishing base.
Our Teaching School vision is to inspire, challenge and innovate Early Years Practitioners, Teachers and Early Educators to improve outcomes for our most vulnerable children and their families regionally, nationally and internationally.  We provide training courses, degree programmes, leadership and research opportunities and bespoke school to school support in all aspects of early years work.  We will work collaboratively with school leaders to identify their needs and co-construct bespoke packages of support.  All teaching teams are committed to an approach that encourages self-reflection, action research and respect for practitioner wisdom.
