I recently made a grand tour of the north of England (including Hertfordshire). I’ll try to give an account of it all here….

On Thursday July 5th I was in Mirfield at the College of the Resurrection for a meeting with representatives of the University of Durham. Durham is going to be the Church of England’s university partner for validating our training courses. The press release for this is here:

Very impressed with Durham’s attitude and offer! (And  not just because I taught there from 1999 till 2006). They seem genuinely to want to support colleges and courses. They are going to create two academic staff post, several admin posts and create web resources to support us and are also going to run staff conferences and student summer schools (optional – some of us run these anyway).

So although there is much still to do and details to emerge, I am quite enthusiastic about the future with this partnership!
