Targeted support for schools and clusters of schools

We have some funding available for facilitators to work with individual schools and clusters of schools, providing tailored support within the Induction and Mentoring programme.

This support is usually provided in locations where it is difficult for PCT/OTTs and mentors to access our face to face workshops, for reasons such as large numbers of PCTs within a school unable to be released simultaneously or geographic location, and where existing clusters/groups of schools exist.
