A new support initiative for teachers in Pembrokeshire is launching tomorrow (Monday, March 19).

The Teaching and Learning Network is the result of a partnership between the County Council and the Chartered College of Teaching.

Leading academic Professor Mick Waters will discuss the new professional standards for teaching at the first workshop.

The standards are an important part of the wide-scale educational reform underway in Wales.

The workshop will provide an opportunity for all teachers to discuss positive ways forward to enhance professionalism, improve impact on pupil outcomes and support teacher wellbeing.

County council Director of Children and Schools, Kate Evan-Hughes, said: “Teachers and leaders in Pembrokeshire have engaged with the Chartered College of Teaching since January,2017, when this much-needed professional body for teachers first welcomed members.

“By partnering now with the Chartered College as a local authority we are ensuring that all of our teachers can benefit from access to the most current and relevant practice and evidence in education.

“In this way, each of our teachers will be encouraged and supported to continue to improve their practice and impact of their pupils’ learning and life chances throughout their careers.”

The Pembrokeshire Teaching and Learning Network will arrange events to provide opportunities for networking, discussion and reflection.
