Learning Communities

SCoPE

SCoPE brings together individuals who share an interest in educational research and practice, and offers opportunities for dialogue across disciplines, geographical borders, professions, levels of expertise, and education sectors. Our activities are facilitated by volunteers in the community, and membership is free and open to everyone.

TES

TES is dedicated to supporting the world’s teachers. Our mission is to enable great teaching by helping educators find the tools and technology they need to excel, supporting them throughout their career and professional development. We’re home to the world’s largest online community of teachers with 7.3 million registered users and this network is one of the fastest growing of any profession globally, helping support, guide and inspire educators around the world.

We host a dynamic marketplace in which educators can discover, share, and sell original teaching materials; Blendspace, a lesson-building product where those resources can be freely integrated and implemented; and Wikispaces, an open classroom management platform that facilitates student-teacher communication and collaboration. In the UK, we provide a range of professional development opportunities for teachers, host the leading teacher jobs market and provide supply teaching solutions to schools.

We’re proud to be part of TES Global, a fast-growing digital education company that’s been supporting educators worldwide for over 100 years.
