Professional Development

Connect with the best ideas, advice and training

Whatever school improvement issues you’re focusing on, we can put you in touch with the right professional development options. From in-school training courses, to online videos and practical reports, all developed with leading independent experts, there’s something to suit every need.

Above all, we have a firm belief that professional development should always be:

  • much more than an isolated day of ‘tips and tricks’
  • part of a sustained school improvement programme
  • of benefit to the whole school – not just one person
  • delivered by independent experts
  • integrated with proven pedagogy and high quality resources
  • about practical application underpinned by evidence

For a selection of professional development highlights, see below. To select by issue, series or expert, simply choose from the options to the left.
