Feedback we received from a co-operative Trust school which recently undertook our ‘Making it work: the first 18 months of a co-operative school’ training in London revealed that it was useful, practical and encouraging. Comments included:
“(I) feel enthused about our Trust status and able to relay this on return to school.”
“We will be able to embrace the values and use our trust status for benefit of pupils.”
This one-day course is aimed at schools which have completed the legal process of becoming a co-operative Trust school or academy and are asking: ‘What next?’; ‘How do we begin the membership journey?’; ‘What are we going to do to get our stakeholders involved?’; ‘Where do co-operative values fit in the classroom?’; ‘How can we tap in to the wider co-operative school network?’
The course is led by Roger White and will explore the first steps you need to take to establish an effective Trust Board and Forum, and to begin the process of embedding co-operative values into every aspect of your school.
Our next ‘Making it work’ training takes place in Truro, Cornwall, on Thursday 3 July. The training costs £175, including a copy of the handbook ‘Making it work: the first 18 months of a co-operative school’, which contained information and case studies on what might come next once a school has been established as a co-operative school.
