Yr Athrofa's passionate and experienced staff recognise that educators are the agents of change and are firmly committed to working with professional partners to create confident, reflective learning communities.

The Athrofa Professional Learning Partnership (APLP), involving more than 100 schools stretching the breadth of South Wales, provides a vehicle through which to do this.

A genuine collaboration between Yr Athrofa and partner schools, the APLP has co-constructed programmes for teachers at all stages in their professional lives – from student-teachers setting out on their career journey, to system leaders managing change.

The development of these programmes heralds a new and innovative approach to teacher education that received national recognition in June 2018, when the APLP was one of just a handful of providers awarded accreditation by the Education Workforce Council (EWC). The commendation ensures Wales’ oldest teacher education centre will continue supporting new and practising teachers long into the future.
