Event Details

Celebrating Teacher Educators

Where & When? Staffordshire University on 23rd April 2020

Cost? Free to Stoke-on-Trent Schools with £150 towards cover costs for each school.

We are delighted to be part of a collective that is organising this free event for Teacher Educators (TE) from all schools and settings in Stoke on Trent. Details about this exciting event are below. We hope that each school in Stoke-on-Trent will be able to support at least one TE to attend. We are so pleased to have attracted so many speakers of national repute as well as offering workshops that will enable TEs.

As a provider collective we are very grateful to the Stoke-on-Trent Opportunity Area for their support for Teacher Educators, (Mentors). Effective professional learning supports not only recruitment, but also retention, as so many colleagues value this essential role.

Effective Teacher Educators enhance the progress that our pupils make through their own high quality teaching and by enabling their colleagues to be even better informed by engaging them with the increasing evidence-base that underpins our growing community of professional knowledge.
