Practice Development Groups #FEMidlandsETF 


The Education and Training Foundation has commissioned touchconsulting Ltd to establish Practice Development Groups (PDGs) in the East and West Midlands. The PDGs will consist of action learning sets of practitioners who will work together on a short-term, small-scale project to enhance the teaching of English or the embedding of maths or English into a programme area.

Become a Group Facilitator

#FEMidlandsETF will launch in October 2020 (with another round starting in January 2021) and touchconsulting are now looking for eight Group Facilitators in each region over the lifetime of the project. You don’t have to be an Advanced Practitioner to apply - someone who loves bringing people together for collaborative events is just perfect, whatever role you’re in. An honorarium payment of up to £400 for each Group Facilitator is available. There's also a small budget for refreshments and there will be lots of support, training and back up to help you feel confident about putting on engaging and stimulating events. Applications close at 5pm on the 25th of September 2020. You can find an application form and full details here

Join a PDG

Touchconsulting are also looking for practitioners who want to join a PDG, especially if you’ve got an interest in maths and English development and sharing with others outside your organisation. These are likely to be virtual events, so you won’t have to travel! Applications close at 5pm on the 25th of September 2020. You can find an application form and full details here 

You can find out more about the PDGs on the touchconsulting website and on Twitter 

If  you have any queries, please email Joss Kang, Project Director.
