Welcome to our Academy Transformation Trust Institute (ATTI). We’re delighted you are taking the time to find out more about us.

The ATTI serves almost 2000 colleagues across 21 academies, cross-phase and cross-regional and we are deeply committed to the very best people development.


Our people development pledge:

We empower all through equality of opportunity and place the needs of our people and the communities we serve at the front and centre of all we do. We believe we are better together and value collaboration within and beyond our organisation. We are resolute in our determination that ATT People Development activities will be the very best professional learning our stakeholders have ever had. Through high-quality people development, we will transform lives and communities.

We offer 38 leadership development pathways across all our directorates, featuring courses written by some of our many talented ATT colleagues and as an accredited centre in collaboration with our strategic partners.

In the aftermath of global lockdown, the design of people development activity has been somewhat re-imagined for many, creating a greater demand for online professional learning contexts- but we have long been obsessed with developing technology. Embracing this as our status quo for sometime now has enabled us to move forward at a steadfast pace with the uncompromising view that our development matters; it is an important factor in helping us to stay connected to each other.

As such, we offer many blended learning opportunities to colleagues:


  • Annual Learning Leaders Conference
  • ATTI Webinars
  • Early Career Teaching Programme
  • Lead Practitioner Accreditation
  • Learning Leaders Coaching Programme
  • National Professional Qualifications

Our people development commitment is not exclusive to our ATT family. Please do get in contact if any of our courses interest you. We recognise our part to play in role-modelling how we can de-privatise our practice and share widely with others beyond our organisation in a way that will lead to whole of system improvement.  Quite an exciting journey we are on together, we’re  sure you’ll agree!
