Gloucestershire has historically been a county of huge collaboration when it comes to networking. The aim of Balcarras TS Hub is to continue that work by facilitating networks across the county. This will include Subject networks at secondary level, Primary networks, EYFS, SEND, transition groups, leadership networks and any other network that we think will support teachers and school staff at all stages of their career.
Our aim is to do an audit of the networks currently in place and then to support the continuation of those groups, plus to introduce new networks. We will carry this audit out in the Autumn term and hope to have some running by October. If you currently run a network, or are keen to be involved in setting one up then please do get in touch.
Currently we have the folllowing clusters planned (this is not an exhaustive list!), please contact us if you are keen to run or join a network cluster.
