Network support

Our membership owns and directs our network: CSNET provides support under three main headings:

  • Professional advice: providing a call centre and personal contact for a range of issues
  • Professional Services: a menu of CPD, support services and partnership resources – click here to download information
  • Professional Voice: working with major unions, professional networks and others to represent our membership with Government and key education forums

The key element to cooperative education is the way in which groups of schools support each other and cooperate with other groups.

CSNET facilitates cooperation, but it is at local learning community level where the really important work takes place. This year has been extraordinary in terms of the challenges – and also in terms of the amazing work being done in cooperative schools and partnerships across the country.

Thank you for your weekly updates, they have been appreciated.  In this pandemic GLP has been very important in support for each other in the various roles.  Reading the weekly reports on shared concerns and solutions and knowing that we are all adapting in the same way has been so helpful. 

As we embark on the summer holidays next week, I hope everyone will have a restful and refreshing break away from school affairs, so we can return in September to ‘the new ways of doing school’ – with energy and enthusiasm – to make 2020/21 the best year possible for all our children and staff.
