Our Secondary Partnership Management Committee (SPMC) is our strategic management group comprised of educational leaders from across the regional education sector who work with us on all aspects of course governance.

We meet formally three times a year, but regularly communicate about course developments and the regional and national educational landscape. SPMC acts like a school governors board; with a focus on strategic aspects rather than operational ones. We cover a number of different aspects, some of which include (but are not limited to): 

  • Mentor training and development 
  • The ITE curriculum 
  • Safer recruitment and safeguarding processes 
  • Recruitment strategy, including partnership involvement 
  • Strategic leadership 
  • Developments in evidence-informed teaching and learning 
  • Innovations
