Professional Learning

We organise a variety of professional learning opportunities linked to our teaching school at a range of school venues. Some are open to both alliance and non-alliance members. We aim to offer sustained learning opportunities through a mix of expert input, action research and school to school enquiry. Our alliance thereby seeks to achieve transformative effect through joint practice development.

Please see below for our latest professional learning opportunities.
