Introducing our new Education Improvement offer for Schools and Academies
Our new-look 2018-19 Education Improvement Service offer for all LA maintained schools, academies, special schools and early year providers is now live on the Derbyshire Services for Schools website.
The Education Improvement Service is now listed on the Derbyshire Services for Schools site as a category featuring the following Provider Pages:
The Derbyshire Entitlement and Core Support
This page covers our core support package for LA maintained schools (The Derbyshire Entitlement) and academies, special schools, support centres and nurseries (Core Support).
This package offers discounts across all Education Improvement service training, access to a named link adviser, three school improvement visits per year and support during inspection.
This page covers all of our curriculum consultancy and training, and includes an easy to access overview of all our forthcoming training opportunities across all key subject areas.
Derby & Derbyshire Music Partnership
The longstanding Derby & Derbyshire Music Partnership is now listed as part of our Education Improvement Service offer.
Early Years and Childcare Improvement Service
Only available to Early Years settings, this page provides an overview of our latest training and consultancy offers for the sector.
Governor Support has always been connected to our Education Improvement offer, and access to the service is a core element of the Derbyshire Entitlement and Core Support packages.
The content of this page - and its resources pages - hasn't changed, just its location on the site.
Headteacher Performance Management
Our popular HTPM package has now been given its own page, to provide you with full details about the necessity and value of this service.
Leadership and Management
Aimed at headteachers and senior leaders, the Leadership and Management page includes all our training, events, conferences and consultancy, including Ofsted support.
Newly Qualified Teacher Induction
Our existing NQT page and support is now part of the Education Improvement category.
Across all the pages you'll find information, support, contact details and more. Each page will also provide access to our scheduled training courses, and bespoke consultancy packages, designed specifically with your school needs in mind.
Our 2018/19 packages and services run on an academic year basis and will start in September 2018. Over the next few months we'll be working to constantly improve our offer, starting with a major re-development of all our Education Improvement Service resources pages.
So, what are you waiting for? Please take a look at our new pages and see what you think.
We've tried to make our new offer as user-friendly and comprehensive as possible, and if you have any questions or comments, just pick up the phone or drop us an email to discuss how we can support you in inspiring staff and improving educational provision for all our children.
