The keys to collaboration



The SBL role – once siloed – has become a beacon of collaboration; professionals are freely sharing knowledge and experience as there is a sector wide willingness to share best practice. Increasingly, schools are working together in formal and informal clusters, with other education organisations and the community – plus, SBL networks are enabling local practitioners to work together to forward the interests of their school.

This session looks at how schools can and are effectively collaborating:

  • Benefits of collaboration
  • Identifying if it is in the best interests of your schools
  • Striking up a collaborative relationship
  • Managing collaboration
