Regional Support for Teachers and Trainers in Maths, English and SEND

Leave a comment

Through this contract the Education and Training Foundation expects to obtain intelligence about regional needs for Maths and English that lead to an appropriate regional Continuous Professional Development programme that is taken up by providers who require our support. It will also provide opportunities for practitioners to share practice to support learners with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities (SEND). As a consequence of this contract, we expect to see improved confidence and competence of practitioners leading to improved motivation of learners and ultimately improved achievement of learning. We would like tenderers to outline how they will measure and report the contribution of this contract to the overall objective of improving learner outcomes.This contract will build on current work to provide support for teachers and trainers with CPD through 18 Regional Specialist Leads (RSLs) for Maths and English as well as supporting regional sharing practice events to improve outcomes for learners with SEND. Monthly reporting will capture provider level data that will demonstrate impact on the Foundation’s CPD offer over time.

Deadline for proposals: 8 March

Funding available: £250,000
