  • COVID-19 and Spring term training

    All our Spring term training will now be delivered virtually and a number of courses are available to book as after-school sessions. We are continuing to monitor government guidance and to work closely with venues so that we can resume centre based training as soon as it is safe to do so.

    To help make it clearer, our courses are now identified on the Learning Zone as follows:

    • Webinar - where sessions are now all virtual.
    • Blended - where the course is now a mixture of virtual and face to face training (where further sessions are later in the year and we may be able to resume venue based training)
    • No categorisation - where sessions are currently still planned as a venue based delivery 

    Should you have any queries regarding spring term training courses please contact htlc.courses@hants.gov.uk.

    • Primary English Core Provision 2020/21

      We launched our English Core Provision 2020-21 programmes with the headteacher briefing sessions in the summer term. There is still time to sign up to these programmes (which run until the end of March 2021) if you have not already had the opportunity to do so. We have online catch-up resources available for the June headteacher briefings.

      The Primary English Core Provision offer for Hampshire schools provides opportunities for English leaders to work collaboratively through a series of subject network meetings and an annual conference.
