We are seeking to recruit teaching assistants who are native English speakers, with recent experience of education in the UK, who have a strong academic background and are able to offer enthusiasm and commitment to our school.

We are looking for students with an enthusiasm for working with children and who may be considering a future in teaching. Read the rest of this entry
Early last week the Economic and Social Research Council published a new research data policy. Aligned with the RCUK Common Principles on Data Sharing, the policy outlines the obligations of ESRC grant holders and their institutions with respect to the collection, management and re-use of research data. A specific requirement is that grant holders should “generate scientifically robust data ready for further re-use” (ESRC).
