Welcome to EKLA

The East Kent Learning Alliance is a partnership of local secondary and primary schools.

Two of which are Teaching Schools – Kent Coastal Teaching School and EKLA Teaching School.

Our vision is to achieve school improvement through working collaboratively and to provide highly effective, relevant, affordable and accessible training and professional development opportunities for all staff (teaching and non-teaching) within schools across the area.

Our aims are:

  • To attract, recruit and train high calibre new entrants to the profession.
  • To provide targeted and bespoke training and professional development.
  • To further develop leadership within and across schools

  • To provide school to school support to help raise outcomes of young people

The type of training and support we can provide includes:

  • NPQML and NPQSL
  • Governor Training
  • Handwriting Success
  • School Reviews
  • Internships for aspiring Middle and Senior Leaders
  • Bespoke CPD

Each of our strategic partners: Dane Court Grammar School, King Ethelbert School, The Canterbury Academy, Herne Bay High School, Joy Lane Primary School, Herne CE Infant & Nursery School and Capel Le Ferne Primary School, have strong and effective working relationships with their clusters of schools.

We are always keen to develop our network of schools and colleagues that we work collaboratively with, so please contact us if you would like further information.
