Educationalists from across the region came together at the University of Worcester to discuss the ever-changing educational landscape and consider new ways of working.
The event, hosted by the University of Worcester’s Institute of Education, was entitled ‘Informing the Future’, and involved a number of the University’s partner schools, academies, early years settings, and FE colleges. The event also saw a number of organisations receive a special Partnership Award from the University.
Ann Jordan, Acting Head of the University’s Institute of Education, said: “Our partnerships are a much valued and essential part of our work. The Partnership Award signifies our intention to continue working together to develop and support regional, national and international networks to promote excellence in education.”
Twenty seven educational organisations were presented with the Partnership Award at this event, including the Taunton Learning Partnership, who demonstrated a model for collaborative school improvement, which has been developed in conjunction with and supported by the Institute of Education.
Successful partnership is defined by the values and principles upheld by the Institute of Education and its partners to work collaboratively to make a real difference to children, young people and their families by training and developing the very best professionals to work with the next generation.
The event was attended by Maggie Farrar, Executive Director of the National College for Teaching and Leadership, who said: “This is a great example of collegiality, honesty and commitment to work together for the good of children and young people.”
