CPD & Leadership Development Events

CPD at Innovate Teaching School Partnership

At Innovate Teaching School Partnership we aim to deliver a wide range of CPD opportunities aimed at both Teaching and Associate staff.  Courses range from a series of sessions run over the course of the year to one off twilights and all will result in a completion certificate to add to delegates personal CPD records.  We appreciate the budget restrictions that schools are working under in the current climate and always strive for affordability with the CPD offered whilst maintaining high quality expert delivery.

As well as our advertised courses, we are very happy to put together Bespoke CPD to meet the specific needs of your staff which could be delivered at your own centre or through the Innovate Training facility depending on your requirements.  Please contact us to discuss this if you think this service may be on interest.
