A Network for Education Professionals

A not-for-profit membership organisation supporting school improvement

VNET supports Schools, Academies and MATs across East Anglia and beyond through our vibrant network. We facilitate CPD, training, consultancy, events, conferences, research and longitudinal projects across our community to support education professionals, for the benefit of children and young people.

Plan. Test. Reflect. with Mark Burns

We are delighted that Mark Burns is leading his ‘Plan. Test. Reflect’ course for VNET members. The course is based on the principle of collective teacher efficacy.  Through four impactful days (two in the summer term and two in the autumn term) teachers will examine, in depth, one specific aspect of teaching and the course gives time as the title suggests to plan, test and reflect!

In this three minute video Mark outlines the course and its benefits. Mark’s award winning training is always highly rated by VNET members. VNET members can access the course using credits. 

Membership of the VNET Network for Schools, Academies and Trusts

Membership for schools, academies and MATs gives access to a wide range of member only courses, conferences and bespoke support, as well as a host of other bespoke support options accessed with a flexible credit system to ensure value for money. 

Members can also access discounted pricing on courses and consultancy as well as gain access to VNET’s longitudinal projects led by internationally renowned educationalists.

Bespoke Support for Schools and MATs

VNET’s Senior Associates are all experienced ex-School Leaders or Ofsted Inspectors with a wide range of expertise. Bespoke support is designed closely with members to work alongside their particular school improvement journeys. Additional support is provided by an excellent team of Change Leaders all working in the system as current Heads, Executive Heads and CEOs and by Specialist Leaders of Education from the local teaching school network.

CPD for Schools and MATs

VNETs mission is to enable members to engage in meaningful professional development, bringing world leading ideas into practice and facilitating vibrant working CPD cohorts. The extensive programme of CPD courses and conferences is informed by the latest research and evidence based practice as well as the needs of the membership. Courses are run in person in a variety of locations across Norfolk, as well as blended learning delivered ‘live’ online, and recorded sessions available for individual and whole staff training.
