Shaping the Future by learning from the past and acting in the present by Darren Atkinson.

This was presented on 03 March 2010 at 'Building Spaces for the Future' an event drawing on recent research by Futurelab about young people’s view of what learning spaces should look like in the future to offer practical support to Local Authorities, schools and those going through building programmes such as BSF and PCP.

  8. 8. Broadening Horizons: Impact<br />“The Next Practice visits have been superb.  I don’t think I had any INSET last academic year (except some netball courses that took place at the weekend!) so I really appreciated the opportunity to visit other institutions and work with other LeAd’s from Croydon.  I generally came back ‘buzzing’ after each visit.  It was also great to be able to offer these opportunities to 4 of my colleagues who also appreciated being involved.” Angie Preston, Archbishop Tenison’s<br />
