EdufundUK are very keen to help with staff training as the benefits for children last for the whole of the teacher(s) career. We were therefore very pleased to award Manland Primary School a grant to fund a day’s training from an English Advisor from Herts for Learning.
In this case, Manland were addressing a specific need as Cally Arbury (School Business Manager) explained:
“We have a new English Lead and have made writing a key focus in our school development plan.
…the new English leader would be skilled up in the latest effective ways of teaching English. This is a particular area where our school needs assistance and writing is one of the focuses of our School Development Plan.”
Manland are certainly squeezing value for money out of the advisor as Cally explained:
“The Advisor would also deliver teacher training at a staff meeting.”
