Members of the Northern Alliance Team joined colleagues from Waterford and Wexford Education and Training Board (WWETB) recently in a seminar organised by Education Scotland. Our Quality Improvement Manager, Kathleen Johnston and CLD lead, Sue Briggs, presented on how we operate in a regional model and shared examples of practical success on the ground through our CLD Workstream.

Sue explained: “This was a valuable networking and practice exchange which will undoubtedly lead to ongoing connections.”

The collaboration came about as a result of networking between Waterford and Wexford Education and Training Board in Ireland and Education Scotland pre-lockdown. Education Scotland suggested looking at regional ways of working and the Northern Aliance were invited to present.

Sue added: “We wanted to showcase our CLD Workstream activity in the context of the wider collaborative and it was a real pleasure to present. There is such value in exploring the structures and practices of other organisations in very different settings – to see the contrasts and the similarities and to reflect on possibilities.” 

WWETB’s educational and training provision includes second-level schools, further education colleges and a range of adult and further education centres delivering education and training programmes.
