Professional Development

Our professional development is primarily designed to meet the needs of our alliance membership group. Our programme draws on learning from our own research and development; as well as national requirements. Our training will always help you to enhance and hone your teaching skills to ensure a rich learning experience for children and young people.

We understand the challenge and commitment schools make to release staff in order to attend a ‘course’. So we carefully quality assure all our services; ensuring that our professional learning experiences have strong impact on practice and outcomes.

Our learning and development experiences are varied, so you learn in the way that is best for you and your school. We offer a wide-ranging and flexible programme where you can learn from national experts or local experts in small groups or a large motivational launch day. We also offer direct training and coaching in your school. Whatever training or learning you decide on you will always receive:

  • Networking opportunities for alliance members.
  • Training resources and materials for alliance members.
  • Lower cost training for alliance members.
  • School based training designed directly with you for whole school, teams or individuals.
  • The opportunity to learn directly from an expert, published author or research leader.
  • Access to nationally recognised programmes and qualifications.
