We offer professional learning and development in a range of areas, including: train the trainers (in teaching, learning & assessment approaches); and personal/ pedagogical CPD in English, maths and digital literacies.
Our training is online
All of our sessions and courses are delivered online via Zoom by default. We can work with your team to enable a hybrid model of training if required. However, if you would prefer us to travel to you, we can also do this but there may be an extra charge. You can read all about the reasons we have made this decision on our Sustainability Statement.
Our training is interactive
We believe in modelling the kind of sessions we purport to encourage; a space with flow and rhythm; a space where everyone has the opportunity to be heard and share their experiences; a space where practitioners have time to think, consolidate and take action. Additionally, we have digital specialists as part of our team who have helped perfect the interactive nature of our sessions with engagement and accessibility at the forefront.
Our training encourages continual reflection
We recommend that you choose to take advantage of the ‘rhythm of CPD’ (Teacher Development Trust, 2015) model that inspires the scaffolded development of each of our courses. This involves a reflective question posed in a pre-session survey to help us understand the teachers’ needs and expectations, as well as give them time to reflect upon the subject we will be soon exploring together. Additionally, there will be a break of at least a week before sessions with light touch yet valuable reflective activities between the two. We have found that this break allows practitioners to digest the content from the first session, reflect on what it means to them and their own practice, and perhaps even try a few things out before the next session. However, we’re aware that this break is not viable for everyone and we can be flexible and work towards your time frame.
Additionally, we also offer pre-session consultation and post-session mentoring sessions to truly extend our training offer and ensure that you and your team get the best out of it.
