Useful social media groups

It is essential that leaders have the opportunity to network with other colleagues doing a similar role. This often happens within a MAT, a local authority or specialist hub. Social media groups are also an incredibly useful way to network with colleagues nationally, and in some cases, internationally. OFSTED may ask subject leaders, middle leaders and heads of department how they use networking to support their strategic planning. Social media groups are great forums to find out information, share information, ask questions and discover resources that may be useful. Here are a selection of Facebook groups that you may find useful for yourself or your teams.
