Continuing Professional and Leadership Development (CPLD)

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.  Our brochure contains details of the core sessions we run throughout the year and you can always ask us to tailor a bespoke programme that best suits your needs.  We also offer CPD packages for institutions wanting a range of topics covered and more in-depth training programmes for issues such as middle leadership which require a series of sessions.

Our CPD topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Pedagogy including planning for challenge, AfL, curriculum development, numeracy, literacy collaborative learning, Thinking/Study Skills and Growth Mindset
  • Coaching/Mentoring
  • Strategies for Disadvantaged students
  • Supporting NQTs/ITTs
  • Leadership Development
  • Behaviour Management, de-escalation and Pastoral support
  • Best practice for support services teams
  • Finance and operations
  • Vocational Learning

Events are open to staff in all local schools.
