The Coalition government has set out a vision for a self-improving education system, based on spreading good practice through networks of schools and a ‘culture of collaboration’.
This debate will explore what progress has been made in putting this thinking into practice, within a policy context that places so much emphasis on competition between schools. Focusing on examples of the different approaches that are being currently used in Greater Manchester - including teaching school alliances, multi-academy trusts and headteacher-led school improvement partnerships - consideration will be given to the following questions:
How are these collaborative partnerships developing?
How are they being governed and led?
What are the difficulties and how might they be overcome?
This is part of the Manchester Education Debates series on schools policy: independent and free events designed to provide a space for people working in education to shape the political debate.
