We support development for staff at all levels and at all stages of their career.

“ Who dares to teach must never cease to learn. ”

John Cotton Dana

We offer a range of training programmes, workshops and school improvement packages for individual staff or as whole-school support programmes. Some of these are offered free, some covered by government funding and others have a cost attached. Our development programmes are designed with long-term, sustainable improvements in mind – and are targeted against an identified need, and offered as part of a wider improvement strategy. We therefore ensure that a gap task is implemented and sent to the school so that the impact can be measured and triangulated. Please see the process in the following diagram.
