Leicestershire Catholic Teaching School Alliance (LCTSA) is dedicated to providing relevant, expert continuing professional and leadership development opportunities for school staff, in order to improve outcomes for all pupils. 

We provide training and support packages for all primary and secondary schools in Leicester City, Leicestershire and beyond, and offer a broad range of training opportunities and events to help support professional development at all levels. 


 Created when Christ the King Catholic Voluntary Academy was designated a teaching school in May 2018, and in our first year over 1,000 delegates benefitted from CPD sessions.

We're also an Appropriate Body for NQT sign off, offering statutory registration services, as well as quality assuring the assessment for NQT's throughout their first year.  We also offer full support and training to NQT mentors. 

Now in our third year, there are over 100 courses that cover EYFS, Primary and Secondary subjects, and  we've expanded our successful primary subject leader networks to include Art, Geography, History, Modern Foreign Languages and more!
