Lincolnshire Education Authority has signed a landmark contract agreement with the Centre for British Teachers (CfBT) to deliver a predicted£50m programme of school improvement service to all Lincolnshire schools over the next ten years.

CfBT, a 'not for profit' international charity, were selected as a preferred partner in January 2002. Detailed contract negotiations with LEA officers resulted in a unique partnership approach. This ensures that CfBT's School Improvement Service will be fully integrated with other LEA services.

CfBT's portfolio of delivery to schools will include the statutory LEA functions of Advice and Inspection, along with the delivery of services in line with the DfES National Grant Scheme 'Standards Fund' and the redesign of the Continuous Professional Development Programme for Teachers and School Governors.

Maureen Spencer-Gregson, executive member for education, said: 'I am delighted that we will be working with CfBT on this exciting partnership development. The school Improvement Support Service is a highly important part of our education programme and with CfBT alongside us, we are confident of developing the very best support for schools and pupils in Lincolnshire.'

Cheryle Berry, director of the county council's education & cultural services, said: 'I am extremely pleased with the implementation and impact of the new Schools Self Evaluation Tool, MSSR (Moderated School Self Review), which has been developed by CfBT in consultation with Lincolnshire LEA for Lincolnshire Schools. All schools have opted to use the tool which is currently receiving national praise.'

The MSSR is CfBT's cornerstone in the drive to improve the quality of educational provision in Lincolnshire. The MSSR encourages schools to realistically evaluate their own development and progress and set challenging supported targets for future improvement.
