Industry leading education training company, TT Education has moved onto Parkside Office Village on the University of Essex’s Knowledge Gateway research and technology park.
The move will strengthen existing links between TT Education and Essex Business School who are working together to develop and launch an innovative new Executive Leadership Programme for senior school leaders.
Parkside Office Village is a vibrant, modern office space at the Knowledge Gateway, on the University of Essex Colchester campus; it has become a hub for SMEs, attracting many businesses thanks to its excellent research links and facilities.
TT Education announced their partnership with Essex Business School in autumn 2017 ahead of their move to Parkside and together they are delivering a 4-day Executive Leadership Programme to meet the specific training needs of senior leaders in schools.
David Maytham, Managing Director of TT Education, said: “Over the last five years we have worked with over 60,000 teachers, TAs and School Leaders in the UK and beyond. Priding ourselves on being at the forefront of cutting edge curriculum and leadership training - coupled with rapid growth, meant moving to The Knowledge Gateway was the obvious choice.”
David continues: “The modern space is beautifully kept, easily accessible and we’ve been able to completely remodel the interior to suit our specific business needs. Being based on the University campus offers us numerous advantages such as proximity to Essex Business School and the on-site facilities at the University of Essex. We’re delighted to be working alongside Essex Business School to offer our new Executive Leadership Programme this summer.”
The programme that runs for two days in June and two days in September aims to show CEOs, Executive Headteachers and Multi-Academy Trust Leaders how effective leadership in education can make a positive difference to children’s lives.
Professor Tazeeb Rajwani, Head of Executive Education at Essex Business School said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with TT Education on our Executive Leadership Programme. The collaboration has enabled TT to access our world class facilities and host the programme here on campus. Their move to Parkside will only reinforce our relationship and I know together we can deliver unique executive education courses.”
Several ambitious businesses are already based at Parkside Office Village alongside Essex Chambers of Commerce, the Haven Gateway Partnership, the Institute for Analytics and Data Science, the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Business and Local Government Data Research Centre.
