As a membership organisation, VNET’s sole purpose is to support its members and we pride ourselves on responding to their needs. To make the most of this unique asset, we ask our members regularly, what is your ‘need of the moment’? Then we respond to the most requested ‘need’ with a webinar, set of resources or practical support for members to access as quickly as we possibly can!

Response from Heads has been great, “Just wanted to say what a brilliant idea this is!” Norfolk Primary Head.

This month the members top needs included;

  • Support around remote delivery of learning
  • The recovery curriculum
    Catch-up strategy
  • Information about the national tutoring programme.

Our response was:
