 Teachers' Voice
Teachers' Voice is a brand new online area for Birmingham teachers only to have their say about our imminent Learning Platform and what difference it could make to teaching and learning.
Teachers' Voice is not designed to provide all the answers, but it does allow teachers to ask the key questions and to share their thoughts, insights and experiences in order to jointly develop some of the answers that we need.
