Welcome to Mercia Learning Alliance 

Mercia Learning Alliance was formed by Ofsted Outstanding Teaching School King Ecgbert School in Sheffield. We offer Initial Teacher Training; continual professional development courses, leadership and succession development, school to school support, and conduct research into initiatives for improving education.

We are now working closely with various primary and secondary partner schools across Sheffield to raise the standard of education and positive outcomes for children throughout the city, including training the next generation of outstanding teachers.

We work in partnership with the University of Sheffield and The Sheffield SCITT and offer Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), a Post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE with 120 Masters' credits) and Post Graduate Certificate in teaching and learning (PGC with 60 Masters' credits) courses.

Mercia Learning School Alliance offers initial Teacher Training (ITT) programmes in primary education and a range of secondary education subjects.

We value our staff and work hard to offer CPD that supports all to develop the leadership skills that are necessary for a career in education, with bespoke programmes that equip colleagues for promoted posts right up to headship.
