Keele University will help to deliver a prestigious teaching training programme based in Stoke-on-Trent.

Keele and North Staffordshire Teach Education (KNSTE) has been named as one of 11 providers in the country that will help to deliver the Chartered Teach Programme, which celebrates excellent teaching and awards teachers with "Chartered" status.

Currently, teachers are required to travel to London to complete the programme, but KNSTE will help those achieving "Chartered Teacher" status across Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, Shropshire, Cheshire, Derbyshire and beyond.

Diane Swift, Executive Director of KNSTE and Stoke-on-Trent Research School, said: "The opportunity to offer the Chartered Teacher programme in our area will increase the local capacity to distil evidence, and to contribute to a growing professional knowledge base."

"By involving more teachers locally and regionally to engage with the Chartered Teacher Programme, KNSTE can contribute towards transforming the life chances of the young people that we are privileged to serve through the power of a high quality education."
