We seek to draw on expertise from across the Teaching School Alliance and beyond to deliver a range of CPD and leadership development opportunities that support individuals at every stage of their career in education.

At the bottom of this page, you will find information about training courses, forums and events of high quality, effective CPD you can take part in, either as a participant or delegate. 

It is important to us that CPD/Leadership opportunities cater to the needs and priorities of local schools and are of a high quality. We offer the opportunity for colleagues to share their expertise and experience by running inspiring events, conferences and seminars and welcome suggestions from those wishing to lead such events. We are also licensed by the National College for Teaching and Leadership to deliver the National Professional Qualifications for Middle Leadership, Senior Leadership and Headship.

From ITT to Headship, we hope that there is something for you in our CPD/Leadership offer. If not we also offer bespoke CPD for an individual, specialist area or whole school. Contact us for more details.
