University of Exeter Graduate School of Education part of regional network to help support teachers

The University of Exeter will be part of a new regional network to help teachers develop their skills and share knowledge.

The University’s Graduate School of Education will be part of the Chartered College of Teaching’s regional network, as a Hub Network. The Chartered College of Teaching works to raise the status of the profession, to support teachers and to equip them with access to high quality research and the skills to evaluate and share their own practice, bridging the gap between research and practice, and supporting teaching professionals to gain the expertise they need to achieve and maintain genuine excellence.

As a member of the network the University of Exeter plans to offer a programme which includes events and online forums for teachers.

Members of the hub – which are schools and universities around the country - will help the Chartered College to build up the professional knowledge base of teaching and allow members of the Chartered College to work on issues of direct concern to classroom practice.

Dame Alison Peacock, Chief Executive, Chartered College of Teaching, said: “A key element of the Chartered College’s mission is to support teachers in engaging with research evidence. Our network programme has been carefully designed to offer flexible, high quality opportunities to ensure that as many teachers as possible can enjoy access to professional collaboration and development.”

Dinah Warren, Head of Initial Teacher Education at the University’s Graduate School of Education, said: "We are very pleased to be able to support the Chartered College of Teaching by becoming a Hub Network and hope to facilitate collaborative knowledge sharing across the South West region“.

More information on forthcoming events and activities of the Chartered College’s network programme will be available at chartered.college
