The Jurassic Coast Teaching Schools’ Alliance have been awarded a grant from the National College for Teaching and Leadership to conduct a Workload Challenge Research Project. The alliance will be looking to compare the collection and use of data by teachers and doctors with the aim of investigating whether some of the principles which underpin the medical profession’s approach can be helpfully applied to schools.

More details about the project and how to get involved will follow shortly but please do contact Laura Webb if you would like to know more.

The Jurassic Coast Teaching Schools’ Alliance annual conference – Learning Uncovered took place on  Wednesday 26 April 2017 at Taunton Racecourse.

The event was attended by over 120 Head Teachers and members of their Senior Teams. The feedback from the conference has been excellent with all agreeing that the balance and speakers was perfect and we are looking forward to hosting the 2018 conference next year.
