Training Times relaunches as The ExchangeTraining Times Relaunches as The Exchange

Following feedback from schools last term, Training Times has been rebranded over the summer, and is now The Exchange.   The September/October edition of the paper is now in schools, with a spotlight on radicalisation, and September Ofsted changes alongside Hertfordshire schools’ and HfL news.

As you will notice, the paper is now slightly smaller, and has been redesigned by HfL’s graphic designer, Niall Hargrave. There are more news stories, more Hertfordshire schools’ stories, and you will now receive the paper folded to make it easier to handle in the staffroom.

The link to the online version can be found here:

This HfL monthly newspaper has something for governors and staff based in schools, whether looking for a little light reading on current educational news or for courses to further your professional development.

  • the right to be forgotten!
  • Exchanging Excellence –  Closing the gap and a Hemel schools’ Transition project
  • HfL’S maths fluency project
