This support is free to users and funded by the LA to help ensure quality delivery of the Diploma and coherence across the East Riding.

There is a Facilitator for each line of Learning.

Facilitators provide curriculum and pedagogical expertise to their specific Diploma development group, and they meet regularly between themselves to share good practice and raise issues that have been discussed by their Line of Learning.
