School Reference Group
The School Reference Group comprises a representative cross section of school leaders from a range of different schools spread throughout the UK. Its role is to advise UCET on the development and implementation of its policies and to support UCET in its discussions with ministers, senior officials etc. Members of the SRG are also able to draw on UCET for advice and support about any teacher education related issues. The SRG meets three times a year, with meetings timed so that they are able to inform the deliberations of other UCET forums and the Executive Committee
