After a robust application & recruitment process the Alliance for Learning Teaching School has been successful in gaining the prestigious status of “Girls Football Super Hub”.
The Altrincham based teaching school will work closely with the FA and the Youth Sport Trust to pave the way for the next Lionesses to take to the pitch. They will be leading the innovation to create a 21st century modern curriculum for girls, enabling them to access and engage in football through the curriculum and really improving the take up of Girls Football. The teaching school will work with PE leads across the North West to further develop the school workforce with CPD on football. The Alliance for Learning is already a PE & Sports Hub with Sport England.
Lisa Fathers, Teaching School Director said “The Alliance for Learning Teaching School is like no other, it champions wellbeing, physical activity & sport, it constantly innovates and responds to need and it is ambitious for its schools and the students in them. We know that now, more than ever, the health of our children and young people is so important and sport brings people together, gives confidence, supports self-esteem. We cannot wait to inspire a new generation of female footballers across the region”
Louise Gear, Head of Development at The FA said ‘The Super Hubs are a crucial network to help us achieve our ambitions for girls football in schools. We want our curriculum, extra-curricular and leadership offers to be leading-edge, which can only be achieved through innovation in design and delivery. Our Super Hubs are leading this innovation work within education, and I thank them all for their passion for achieving positive change for girls through football.’
