HEP are pleased to confirm that ‘Develop your A level teaching’ meeting 3 is going ahead on Wednesday 24th February at 2.30pm. As you can appreciate some alterations have had to be made, further details of these are being shared at the next Secondary Partnership meeting and within the SLTL group. The meeting will run as a pre recorded webinar, launched at the calendared time. This will consist of short presentations edited together on issues pertinent to A level teaching in the current climate, such as CAGs, recovery curricula for year 12, keeping motivation high for year 13, planning for incoming year 12 and what are the opportunities presented by online learning going forward. Colleagues best placed to create these top quality presentations are those in HEP schools. SLTL reps have been contacted with more details; HEP needs suggestions of expert practitioners to work with, across the geographical range of the 13 schools who participate in DAT. There is a tight time frame, but there will be further support from HEP to those presenting. Thank you in advance for your support, showcasing the T&L talent within your school and across HEP to make this meeting a clear demonstration of partnership working at its very best.

We are delighted to confirm that the HEP application, made on behalf of HEP member schools, for the Kickstart scheme has been successful. This means 36 of our schools will be funded to support the employment of 170+ young people, currently on Universal Credit, for 6 months. In addition HEP will also manage a fund to provide an employability wraparound programme for each young person during their Kickstart scheme employment - more information on this programme will follow soon.
In the meantime, HEP will be contacting all schools who registered for the application over the next two weeks to set up individual school employer agreements as well as setting up the process with the Department of Work and Pensions to advertise the roles via local our Job Centre Plus offices.
