For Secondary School Subject Leaders, Teachers, NQTs & Trainees

Our termly secondary subject networks continue to go from strength to strength with 43 schools and over 300 teachers having engaged in meetings so far. Furthermore, new  networks for Media, Business and ICT/Computer Science are being introduced this year.  If you would like to see a network running beyond those listed below, please get in touch via the Contact tab! Given the huge expansion of these networks over the last two years, an annual whole school membership fee of £30 will now apply (increasing to £50 from September 2017), assisting network administration. This fee covers all teaching staff across your school for all networks running during this academic year.  Networks are FREE to all Billericay Teaching School Alliance Members.  Please email to find out more about the benefits of being a member including course reductions and free courses.
