Lisa Fathers nominated to join the prestigious GMLP Executive Group – Greater Manchester’s Strategic Education Network

Director of Development and Teaching School Hubs, Lisa Fathers, has been elected by her peers to join the Greater Manchester Learning Partnership (GMLP) Executive Group as a Board member.

The GMLP Executive Board members are charged with organising and managing the work of the Board and representing them at both local and sub-regional level.

Members of the Executive are supported by an independent Chair and sit on both the Greater Manchester Education and Employability Board and The North West School Improvement Board. Several members of the Executive, including Lisa, also represent Education on the Greater Manchester Reform Board which is chaired by Mayor, Andy Burnham.

Lisa said of her appointment: “To have the opportunity to represent all of our Greater Manchester Teaching School Hubs at this level is both an honour and a privilege. I am delighted to have been elected for this role by my peers who have been so supportive through the years and especially now as we navigate the exciting changes in teacher development and the roll out of the new Teaching School Hubs.

“Joining the GMLP Executive Group as a Board member provides me with a great platform to represent all of the amazing Teaching School Hubs in the area. I look forward to collaborating with them in this new capacity and meeting the aims of the GMLP and its initiatives to produce the best possible outcomes for the children and young people of Greater Manchester.”

The Teaching Schools Hubs which Lisa will represent are:

  • Bright Futures Teaching School Hub Trafford & Salford
  • Bright Futures Teaching School Hub Manchester & Stockport
  • Generate Teaching School Hub Wigan
  • Star Academy Teaching School for Bolton, Bury and Rochdale
  • The Blue Coat School for Oldham

GMLP was established in 2016 when it was set up to enable teaching schools to work collaboratively with local authorities and system leaders for the benefit of all young learners in the area. The work of the Partnership is guided by the Executive Group. The Partnership meets every half term with individual groups meeting more regularly and local partnerships in each of the 10 Greater Manchester local authority areas. Click here to find out more.
