"We need an education system driven by hope not fear, a system that appreciates the humanness of human beings."                                                                                                                                             Yong Zhao

Why - Cambridgeshire is one of the lower performing Local Authorities in the country.  To help change this situation is is key that we recruit, retain and support returning and new teachers to the profession as well as offer exciting an innovative learning opportunities to ensure that the highest calibre educatiors are working with our young people in our brilliant country and beyond.  In addition the educational landscape can seem a very political and polarising place at the moment.  We want to inspire hope, joy and optimism, create an exciting buzzabout learning and empower teachers to reclaim their profession.

We are looking for support and ideas from
