Press Release - Teacher voice heard at seminar organised by regional educational body
Teachers from across Gwent were invited to a seminar hosted by the Education Achievement Service (EAS) for South East Wales on July 4th  at the Parkway Hotel, Cwmbran.. The event aimed to inform teachers of the work of the EAS and to listen to teachers in a bid to improve communication between the service and schools within the region.  

The event was the first of its kind and provided information to staff who may not have been involved in direct communication with the EAS. The half day interactive seminar was welcomed by those who attended.
Since its implementation in 2012, the work of the organisation has been predominately with Local Authorities, Head teachers and governing bodies. The seminar aimed to encourage the voice of teachers with a view to developing and maintaining effective communication, participation and engagement with school staff for the future. 

The seminar gave the EAS the opportunity to listen to school staff, work to build on the existing support and discover what was really important to them. It also provided insight into their experience of the organisation.
A number of activities were arranged to gain an insight in to the current feelings of teachers and an opportunity for the EAS to share key messages.

In addition, a focus on professional learning provided an insight into the current training provision offered by the EAS and similar bodies, as well as the service teachers would like to receive in light of forthcoming changes within education in Wales.

Participants provided valuable feedback, indicating the seminar was a ‘good opportunity to voice opinions and give feedback’ and it was ‘great to discuss with other teachers and understand best ways forward for teachers and the EAS as a holistic approach’.

Debbie Harteveld, Managing Director of the EAS said:  “This seminar was very successful. I am grateful for the honest and open feedback and time given up by teachers from across the region. This indicates that they very much valued the chance to engage with us.  We will use information to determine what is working well, how we can improve the way we work with school-based staff and what needs to change. New ideas and opportunities will emerge to build on the valuable feedback from teachers in the autumn.”
