Welcome to the new home of the CLA blogs for schools and further education colleges! We are very excited to be launching the blogs on a new and improved site to continue to build a strong relationship between CLA and teachers and education professionals across the UK.

We launched our Education Blog back in 2017 on the main Copyright Licensing Agency website to explore the different ways that teachers can find and use published content in the classroom, share best practices and top tips that will help to enhance lessons and give students a richer and more diverse learning experience.

Since then the blog has gone from strength to strength, and has grown into a space where different teachers, librarians and education professionals have been able to share their thoughts and ideas. We have enjoyed hosting a wide variety of guest posts from industry professionals, who have been able to cover a vast array of topics that are important and relevant to them and their peers.

We also like to share our own posts about copyright, and the CLA Education Licence, addressing any copyright fears you might have and showing you how much your Licence covers you to do, and the ways that you can make the most of it. We’ll also by keeping you up to date with the latest Education Platform developments and features, as well as share tips on how to get the best out of the platform.

From time to time we’ll also be writing blogs about the Schools Printed Music Licence, and the NLA Schools Licence, highlighting how these valuable resources can make printed music and newspapers more accessible to students. 

We’re always on the look out for new guest writers from primary, secondary and further education! So, if you’re interested in writing about your own experiences in the classroom or the world of education, or with copyright and using published content, we would be delighted to hear from you and provide a platform for your voice – please get in touch!

We’re still hosting our back catalogue of blogs on the Copyright Licensing Agency website, and you can view them here: https://cla.co.uk/blogs/schools
