The Portal aims...

  • To Create a Live Channel for Regional Collaboration and Communication

     To create a live channel of communication that can be shared with colleagues in developing policy and national guidance.

    We understand that it has been a very challenging time for all colleagues working in education and we trust that you and your communities are keeping well, and that you continue to stay safe in the coming weeks.
  • To Find Solutions and Share Resources

    Find solutions for the challenges identified and share resources and guidance across networks to support the delivery of remote learning and CPD during closure if needed, whilst being sensitive to the danger of overloading colleagues.

    For educators managing learning due to school closure, we have developed a remote learning page which aims to aggregate and share resources, experiences and guidance on how to manage remote learning and working. 

  • To Provide Aligned System Leader Support and CPD

    To provide a single point of access for schools to find aligned CPD and System Leader Support.

    Access an extensive selection of school-led training and Continuing Professional Pevelopment from over 80 Providers across the South West of England Here

    From the Portal's System Leader Support Directory you can access a range of system leaders across the South West of England. Make links and connections to regional expertise.
