What is the Lead QToD (Resource Provisions) Forum?
A platform to share good practice and seek solutions to the challenges of the role of leader of a resource provision. The LeadQToD(RP) is an e-mail discussion list for Qualified Teachers of the Deaf (QToDs) who are responsible for the management of a resource provision. Messages posted to the forum, via email, are automatically sent to all members.
The purpose is to enable Lead QToDs to exchange good practice, ask questions and discuss issues of current interest. The value of the forum lies in the ease and openness with which individual Lead QToDs can ask questions about working practice, developments specific to specialist resource provisions, and share information and experience. The forum should inform strategic planning and development for resource provisions.
The value of the forum is:
- it is free to join
- it provides instant access to colleagues with similar concerns
- it provides an opportunity to exchange professional views and opinions
- it gives access to expertise
- it can reduce professional isolation.
Members of the forum need to be aware of the public nature of exchanges and ensure that they are not compromising their organisations when they reply to messages. .
We operate the usual basic courtesy rules and ask members of the forum to respect the no advertising rule. This applies in particular to job adverts (see below)
