Time to Teach the Pros

Programme 20 hears from Gill Taylor, who runs the government’s new Academy for Sustainable Communities. She tells us why she wants residents to unleash their expertise on re-educating professionals.Sounds like one more burden on active citizens? Perhaps not – the academy also wants to support these new teachers and relieve some of the stresses of getting and staying involved. The Grassroots Channel is supported by the Birmingham Community Empowerment Network.
