This new peer to peer discussion forum for academies, maintained schools and local authorities is to allow you to talk to others.
We have hosted the service for further education colleagues for several years now. You’ll be able to see from their lively forum, how helpful it is to discuss issues with peers.
All users will need to register on this new service to post topics/replies or subscribe for alerts. Registrations need to be approved by ESFA staff, but that is usually done within a few working hours.
Avoid sharing information that could identify individuals, such as pupils or staff members.
Remember that the ESFA cannot guarantee the accuracy of any information shared with the community
