The co sponsors of the Cabot Learning Federation are Rolls-Royce PLC and the University of the West of England (UWE) We are delighted to be able to work closely with these two internationally recognised organisations which will add huge value to our work with teachers and students Rolls-Royce PLC have been sponsors of John Cabot since the time when it was a City Technology College. Their global reputation and practices within the world of engineering in Bristol, the UK and across the world ensures that our interest and focus in the federation on Science and Technology will be supported and enhanced by their involvement. UWE is one of the most successful higher education institutions in the country. Their initial teacher training is outstanding and they provide a range of programmes for training and development for established teachers. We enjoy working closely with the University to develop the skills of our workforce and contribute to their research to develop the highest quality education provision across the UK.
