Strategic CPD solutions for local school improvement

Please note: due to an administrative error with our earlier Venue, Cheadle House, we will now be hosting this event at the Village Hotel Warrington.

We are bringing together our regional school partners for a development forum to look at strategic collaboration linked specifically to local and national policy perspectives.

The event will provide a platform for our partners, associates and representatives from our other school-based partners across the network to develop local solutions to current policy directives.

Our upcoming regional event "Strategic CPD solutions for local school improvement", supporting the North West, takes place in on Thursday 21st November at the Village Hotel Warrington.

Building on the knowledge and outcomes of previous events, this half-day event will include examples of practice-based solutions to what strategic partnership can look like from a prospective Teaching School Hub’s work, and from the Archdiocese of Liverpool, who have implemented a highly effective regional partnership model.

To maximise the impact of this meeting we ask that you extend an invite to colleagues from schools’ groups with whom you are currently collaborating.

If you are unable to attend the event, then we ask that you send a representative from your partnership.
