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.
