Bath Spa University's Institute for Education partners with Chartered College of TeachingTuesday, 5 December, 2017
The Chartered College of Teaching, a professional body for the teaching profession, and Bath Spa's Institute for Education, which has been educating teachers for 70 years, will work collaboratively to strengthen professional networks for teachers across the South West.
The two organisations will be developing a regional network programme which will build on a professional knowledge base of teaching and provide a centre to bring together teachers to work on issues of direct concern to classroom practice.
The network programme will offer flexible, high quality opportunities to ensure that as many teachers as possible can enjoy access to professional collaboration and development. It will also be a base for large-scale events and activities, supporting collaborative knowledge-sharing through partnerships with schools and other educational organisations.
Professor Kate Reynolds, Executive Dean of Bath Spa University's Institute for Education, said: "The Institute for Education has been educating students, teachers and other education professionals since the 1940s. We are a place where students, teachers, governors, researchers, support staff and everyone interested in education can come together in a community of research and practice.
"We are delighted to be working with the Chartered College which will enable us to continue our commitment to supporting and training teachers in the South West."
The Institute for Education is committed to the continuing support and training of teachers in the form of 'Network for Learning' through which continued training is offered both online and opportunities to develop and sustain professional networks for teachers.
