A FLINTSHIRE community enterprise is to bring its education expertise to hundreds of independent schools across the UK thanks to a new partnership.

Flintshire based ​Nexus Education​ has announced a partnership with education training providers ​Independent Schools Portal (ISP)​, who are based in Leeds.

This will enable more than 800 schools in 2019/20 academic year to access training and speed networking sessions across the UK.

The partnership will see Nexus Education add their NeXworking sessions to the Independent School Portal.

Independent School Portal’s 25+ whole day professional development events will take place across the UK in 2019/20 and will attract around 22 independent schools per session.

As a result of this partnership, independent schools attending the CPD sessions will continue to be able to access training and development for just £35 as opposed to more than £300 without Nexus Education’s funding.

Nexus Education co-founders, Damien Challenger and Mike Reardon, said: “We are extremely excited to be partnering with the ISP to bring our informative sessions to hundreds of independent schools across the UK in the 2019/20 school year.

"Working alongside the ISP, the whole day sessions will continue to become the bedrock of a school leader’s training and networking activities to ensure that UK schools stay ahead of the curve.”

Since September 2018, bespoke NeXworking sessions have saved more than 500 state schools across the UK, tens of thousands of pounds through pertinent introductions to solutions addressing each school group’s individual needs.

These savings are in addition to Nexus Education donating 20 per cent of their own revenue directly to schools working alongside them.

This is part of an aim to donate £100,000 to schools by 2022.
