Learners First Schools Partnership
Connecting People, Promoting Excellence
Building professional networks and facilitating meaningful partnerships which aim to support the individual endeavours of schools, academies and MATs.
Welcome to Learners First
Established in 2012, Learners First is an independent, not-for-profit, school-led organisation governed by serving school leaders. It is built on a mature model of partnership and collaboration. We work with a range of partners within and beyond the sector to ensure our work meets the above aims. Our work is focused on three core, interdependent areas:
- Leadership Development and Transformation
- Teaching & Curriculum Excellence
- Governance Development
Overall, the partnership aims to add real and significant value to the endeavours of individual schools, academies and MATs, beyond that which any individual entity could achieve alone.
