South Yorkshire Teaching Partnership (SYTP) have worked with other Teaching Partnerships (TPs) around the country to establish the TP National Networking Forum – the purpose of which is to share knowledge and good practice, and to act as a collective voice for TPs. The first meeting of the forum was held in Manchester in June 2017, and included representatives from 8 TPs.
The second meeting was held in September 2017, hosted by SYTP. 11 Teaching Partnerships were represented at this meeting. The meeting was also attended by the DfE, who will use information gained from the meeting to feed into decision making about the future of funding for Teaching Partnerships. Topics discussed at the meeting included: Placements; CPD; Workforce and labour market planning; and the future of Teaching Partnership funding.
The next meeting will be held in Nottingham on the 9th January, hosted by the D2N2 Teaching Partnership. For more information about this meeting please contact Chris Durkin, D2N2 Project Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org
