Bristol Early Years Teaching Consortium (BEYTC)
There is, I believe, actually nothing more powerful to say about education than this; that all people, however young or old, have an enormous drive and capacity to learn; ... that the most effective teachers trust learners, enhance their self-esteem, have no need to control them, provide an unconditional support which doesn't go too far; and value all types of intelligence in all areas of learning.
Paul Ginnis - Freethinkers Guide to the Educational Universe - January 1994
BEYTC is a consortium of 2 outstanding Bristol Early Years settings, both of which were awarded National Teaching School Status in March 2013:
BEYTC has a well established track record in all six aspects of Teaching School delivery. It works collaboratively with a wide range of Early Years settings; nursery, primary and secondary schools, and other Teaching Schools, both Bristol based and beyond. It has well developed partnerships with Bristol Local Authority, Higher Education establishments and a range of statutory and voluntary agencies (locally and nationally).
All headteachers are NLEs with experience of delivering training to leaders, leadership teams, teachers/practitioners and parents/carers.
"Our work together as a collaborative partnership is based on our individual strengths. It has unequivocally high standards and builds on active research and evidence based practice. We hold the learner firmly at the heart of all our learning, providing challenges to develop emotionally and culturally intelligent leadership at all levels. We believe that our expertise helps to narrow the gap in outcomes & achievement for both children & families."
Our vision is to strengthen our own and others' 'learner centred leadership' practice through:
- Equitable pedagogy
- Capacity building
- Critical enquiry
- Cohesive communities
We work with children, families, practitioners, adult learners, our education and other sector colleagues, and communities at a local, national and international level.
