We are delighted to announce the first Dartmoor TSA Modern Foreign Language Conference on Friday 8th March 2019.
Keynote and workshop will be delivered by Dr Gianfranco Conti: a lead practitioner and researcher in MFL, a teacher of over 30 years experience, and holds a MA and PhD in Applied Lingusitics. He is the founder of the language learning site language-gym.com and has won the TES best resource-contributor award; as well as being the co-author of the best-selling book The Language Teacher Toolkit.
There are also three superb workshops delivered by leading MFL practitioners from the wider Devon area.

We are excited to launch a new, innovative programme to primary members: the Outstanding Primary Teacher Programme. Please find attached the programme flyer, which includes a booking link.
It is distinctive and significant for a number of reasons:
We are delighted to welcome Clyst Vale Community College as a member to Dartmoor TSA. CVCC is a successful 11-18 academy in Broadclyst, near Exeter, and is highly active in a range of school partnerships. We look forward to working closely with colleagues from CVCC and learning from the expertise they can offer across the Alliance.
Following on from the success of the 2017-2018 pilot, we are pleased to launch today the this year's Aspiring Middle Leaders' Programme and Aspiring Senior Leaders' Programme. Both are designed and delivered by outstanding practitioners from within our Alliance.
I valued the honesty in which the course was delivered. The expertise of the two senior leaders that ran the course and the balance of theory to real life shadowing and experiences within the course.
Completing this programme has given me whole school experience, aiding my CPD and giving me the confidence to develop further. It has also helped me to completely redraft my application letter for the better and encouraged me to apply for an SLE role.
