Professional Development

Professional Development

Our professional development opportunities draw on a substantial range of knowledge and expertise which enables us to offer a broad variety of development opportunities.   From our own development and research and working alongside a number of schools, we are well placed.

We understand the need for schools to get best value from any activities that involve releasing staff, so our professional development opportunities are designed to deliver high quality and relevant learning experiences to delegates that will have a tangible impact on young people and the organisations they attend.  All our training is carefully planned and quality assured.

We offer whole day, half day and twilight courses both at our venues and in schools.
