We’re developing a range of ways to promote the work of the Collaborative. We’ll be engaging with thousands of practitioners on how best they can exchange information and how they can access the development opportunities and materials that will be on offer.
There will be practical support too – like budget cover to make it easier for teachers to attend events or new e-learning opportunities.
We’d love for you to help shape that work and for discussions across the local authorities to start now! Come join the conversation!
