ABOUT THE INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS PORTAL
Launched in February 2016, the Independent Schools Portal works directly with local networks of teachers to provide support and high quality training and development completely free of charge. We support practitioners who work across the age spectrum from EYFS to Sixth Form, across all types of schools including Academy Trusts, Grammar, Free, Independent and International Schools.
We work with you to put together and deliver a programme for your training and professional development and we collaborate with some of the most influential and inspirational names in education including Lisa Ashes, Hywel Roberts, Dr. Debra Kidd, (The Real) David Cameron and many others. We also work with other high quality external organisations such as SATIPS, CEBG Consulting, JMCInset and RSAcademics to ensure your days are memorable and have a long-lasting impact. We are also due to begin collaborating with the Chartered College of Teaching in early 2019. All of our work is funded by companies working in education, so all of the support we provide to teachers and school leaders is completely free of charge.
Our e-Newsletter is sent out weekly each Sunday during term time. It is a digest of education news, free resources, statutory and regulatory guidance, selected academic research, opinion, practitioner articles and latest updates on available training and professional development meetings.
The e-Newsletter is currently sent to over 11,000 teachers and senior leaders worldwide each week and we welcome articles from all colleagues working in education (ideally 400-800 words).
We are able to provide all of our activities free of charge entirely thanks to the support of our corporate supporters who fund us in return for exhibition space and face-to-face contact at the events, promotional opportunities in the e-Newsletter and inclusion in our supplier marketplace.
