Networking across the ERW region

The Leaders of Learning for core subjects compliment networking arrangements where they currently exist in local authorities.  This allows heads of department to share and develop the good practice that already exists within schools and enables Leaders of Learning to focus on national and regional priorities within the subject area.

There are designated HWB networks available for all teachers within ERW to join.  This will give teachers the opportunity to share the most recent subject developments through the discussion board.  Recent developments and updated schemes of work and teacher resources can be found in these areas.

This term, for English there have been meetings in Powys (MRC) on 6th March and for Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire teachers in the Griffiths Jones Centre, St Clears on 13th March.  For further information please contact Ian Altman.

In non-core subjects and MFL there are designated lead schools which work alongside local authorities to ensure there are networking opportunities for all Heads of Department across ERW.  The Leaders of Learning work with the lead schools to establish effective networks to support these subjects at GCSE.
