The learning hub is a space a teachers to find and share advice, lessons and curriculum ideas.

It is the single point of contact for information for schools in Sunderland.
We have been hard at work bringing other sites for schools into the hub so that we can make it easier for schools to get the information they need.

Like any site of this nature it's true value comes from the contributions made by its members. So if you have a resource you have used to good effect in your teaching why not add it to the lesson resources section

Part of the hub is the new CPD booking system known as the "Training Hub" many of you have already started to use it to book onto courses and initial feedback is that you love the way it works. If any schools want to publish training courses via the hub you can do so by contacting the hub team via the contact page

If you have a great website please add it to the links section.

What else can you find on the hub?

Education Safeguarding

The Educator's Network

We also have a social networking feature called the Educator's Network so you can have an online space to share and collaborate with other members of the site. Here you can also set up interest groups these could be totally online or the online space for organising physical groups of you to meet like the IT Coordinators network facilitated by the Learning Technologies Innovation Team.
