Our Vision

Our vision is, ultimately:

Cool Timeline


By 2021

By 2021, our clearly articulated all-through career framework will understand and provide for the individual development needs of everyone working in our schools, complimented by a strategic overview that builds simplicity in recruitment and capacity ahead of need.


By 2022

By 2022, One Cumbria will be whole; through a collaborative model of systemic training we will energise a professional dissatisfaction in our craft because no matter how good we are we will all remain utterly convinced we can be better. It will deliver consistent exceptional performance being an identifiable contributor to economic prowess.


By 2023

By 2023, children in Cumbria will attend schools that are academically obsessed with delivering the pinnacle of teaching and learning, as though we invented it. It will not matter where they live, they’ll have the very best schools right there in their own community.


By 2024

By 2024, under the expert guidance of academically brilliant adults Cumbria’s children will be learning the powerful knowledge, skills, attitudes and values they need to thrive and shape their world.


By 2025

By 2025, the effortless recruitment of aspiring teachers, the training and retention of existing teachers and leaders in Cumbria will intuitively deliver a network of perpetual development and opportunity to those experts in their fields. One Cumbria will naturally retain talent until it’s time to let it loose on the rest of the education system with all the skills and potency borne from an unrivalled training institute.


By 2030

By 2030, One Cumbria will have legitimate grounds to claim that our educational experience enables those we undertake to train a preparation for life that is excelled by no other. This will be our distinction.
