We are incredibly excited to be starting work on the next three-year Enhancement Theme – Resilient Learning Communities! We are also delighted to welcome our new Theme Leadership Team:

We are working closely with them to start planning activities and over the coming months we will bring you more information about our Team and what the year ahead will look like. A short leaflet provides an introduction to the Theme.

Please do get in touch with us at to share thoughts and ideas on how you might want to be involved and help us spread the word at #ETCommunities.
