Looking ahead to this academic year, after such a challenging year for all in 2020, we are excited by the vision and plans ahead for L.E.A.D. Equate Teaching School Alliance. With one aim of ‘providing the highest quality of professional development for all sectors of the workforce in order to bring about the greatest outcomes for pupils’ we feel that we have responded to feedback in relation to current needs in all areas. Keen to support schools in overcoming the barriers which 2020 has presented, we feel that we have offered a number of options for bespoke training within your own settings, as well as face to face opportunities too. L.E.A.D. Equate Teaching School Alliance will continue to work with a range of partners across the East Midlands, to offer the highest quality professional development across Lincolnshire, L.E.A.D. Academy Trust and beyond. We aim to deliver this offer and strive to maximise our impact by working collaboratively with strategic partners in each region. We aim to ensure that our talented and forward thinking professional development team, including our SLE’s, produce high quality training packages which have a sustained and significant impact. Excited by this vision and the opportunity that comes with the next phase of development, we again look forward to working closely with you to ensure that we can provide an offer which closely meets the needs of both the staff and pupils within your setting. Thank you for your on-going support and feedback in relation to the work that we do.
