ERW is an alliance of six Local Authorities governed by a legally constituted joint committee. Its aim is to implement the agreed regional strategy and business plan to support school improvement.
The ERW consortium was re-established following the release of the National Model for School Improvement (Welsh Government in February 2014). The National Model outlines the Welsh Government’s vision of regional school improvement consortia. The ERW consortium was reformed in April 2014, with the Managing Director commencing in May 2014. The Cabinet of each respective local authority within the Region has adopted the Legal Agreement in place for ERW’s operation and governance.
The consortium comprises of six local authorities; Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire, Powys, the County Borough of Neath Port Talbot and the City and County of Swansea.
The purpose of ERW is to deliver a single consistent and integrated professional school improvement service for children and young people in a range of settings within the six local authorities.
