The FA1 and Ambition North West Hub is a collaborative partnership led by Forward As One CE Multi Academy Trust, including partner MATs and schools across the North West region. We are working in close partnership with Ambition Institute, for the purpose of delivering Ambition Institute's Early Career Teacher programme and suite of National Professional Qualifications. We see it as our civic duty to deliver the highest standards of training and professional development, so our Educators and Leaders across the North West can flourish and reach their true potential.

We value the potential of:

  • High-quality professional development to improve the quality of our teaching and leadership and provide environments for our staff and children to flourish and achieve 

  • Evidence-based and informed CPD which supports sustainable development

  • Regional and local networking to mobilise professional knowledge and understanding

  • Collaboration and mutual support to build capacity at all levels of our partner schools


We work together by:

  • Respecting each other’s mission, values and stages of development

  • Serving our school communities by removing barriers to engagement in professional development

  • Promoting diversity and inclusion, and valuing the local context

  • Ensuring that formal organisational structures and processes bring transparency and clarity of roles, finance, and communication

  • Being responsive to the priorities and capacity of our partner schools

  • Maintaining open and honest working relationships underpinned by mutual respect and integrity

  • Collaborating – not competing!

The National Professional Qualifications (NPQs)

We’re pleased to announce that we are partnering with education charity Ambition Institute to deliver the new and reformed NPQs which have been developed as a complete series, sharing a common language. This means you can have the confidence that all the educators in your school are building and developing their knowledge from the same evidence-based frameworks.
