A Norfolk and Suffolk academy trust is to expand its teacher training to London after demand from the capital.

The Inspiration Trust launched a range of professional training programmes at its Hewett Academy, in Norwich, and Thetford Academy last year.

But it says demand has come from places as far away as Leicester and Coventry, as well as from London.

It has now decided to partner with a Greenwich school and expand its courses, with the first sessions to run on April 17 and May 17.

Director of education Christine Counsell said: 'We set up these courses primarily to help our local schools develop their staff, but increasingly we are being contacted by teachers from further afield who want to know more about our curriculum and knowledge rich approaches.

'We are really pleased to be partnering with Thomas Tallis School in Greenwich to trial running courses in London, to help make those ideas accessible to the wider profession in an easy and affordable way.'
