London Connected Learning Centre (CLC) is pleased to announce the launch of its new, free professional development programme for teachers and educators created as part of the Mayor of London’s Digital Talent Programme.
TechPathways London aims to bridge the digital skills gap between education and the 21st-century jobs market. We help educators of 11-24 year olds support their young people in developing the digital skills they need to succeed in the modern workforce.
Training is delivered either online, at our centre in Clapham Old Town, or at one of our industry partner locations. Alternatively, send us an email and we can discuss running sessions in your school or venue (minimum 20 attendees). The CLC team is happy to tailor courses. For more information contact: Caitlin McMillan.

Now Available - Lambeth School Services Online - Service Offers - 1st April 2019 to 31st March 2020
1. The 2019-20 Lambeth School Services offers are now available online for purchase. A personalised brochure for your school can be downloaded as a PDF and, as with previous years, provides comprehensive information on the Lambeth Council services which are available to schools to purchase. Although the new service offers start from 1st April 2019, schools are able to choose and make purchases or request quotes from today.
2. To download a copy of your school’s brochure go to http://www.lambethschoolservices.co.uk/ and use the icon at the top right-hand corner of the homepage to log into your school area. Click on the services tab to view the download a bespoke brochure function.
3. There is also a buy now link which enables your school to view a simple list of all the services on one page. You are able to tick which services the school requires and then make one overall purchase or a quote request. Again any prices shown are individual to your school. This function is particularly helpful where a school wants simply to renew their service for another year. This page can also be printed off. Click ‘expand all’, right-click and choose Print or use the printer icon at the top right of the page to choose print.
4. Although many of the Council’s services offer ad hoc purchases that can be made throughout the year, a number of services also provide annual SLAs which require prior indication of interest from the school - these include: Education Psychology Service, Schools Crossing Patrol, Schools Human Resources, Payroll and Research and Statistics. It would be very helpful if schools could confirm interest in these services if possible by 31st March 2019 so that we can ensure services are well organised and resourced to meet your needs.
5. Please remember that you can continue to buy current 2018-19 ad hoc services until 31st March 2019.
