What are the benefits for member schools?

Member schools of the Peterborough Learning Partnership benefit from effective support to improve learning outcomes for pupils and continued professional development of teachers. We achieve this through our Professional Development Programme, where our member schools receive training at a highly reduced cost.

We are pleased to welcome delegates to attend our fifth annual Festival of Learning by engaging, celebrating learning and teaching. Like-minded delegates have the opportunity to exchange and gain new ideas through workshops, keynote speakers and exhibition stands. The Festival of Learning is part of our programme to attract national and internationally regarded presenters to inspire, engage and support teachers. Last year we attracted over 400 delegates, made up of school leaders, governors, teachers, support staff and other education representatives.

Welcoming all educationalists to attend. Member schools will receive free places whilst there is an additional cost for non-members.

Each year we connect member schools with our partner organisations, where schools are able to benefit from discounts and free membership to their organisation. Please see below to view the excellent benefits that are available to our members 2017-18!
