CPD & Leadership Courses


We offer a range of twilight, half day and full day courses and events within the region. Our varied programme supports teachers, middle and senior leaders, teaching assistants and others within schools to improve their knowledge and skills, and to have a positive impact on their future practice.

Please note that our planned Summer Term brochure was put ‘on hold’ following the national school closures in March 2020. In these unusual times, we are pleased to be able to offer a reduced programme of remote CPD for school staff to access from their location of choice. We intend to extend the range of courses that we are able to offer remotely from the Autumn Term. To view the courses that are currently available please follow this link to remote CPD opportunities

Spiritual, Moral, Social & Cultural Development


I wanted to let you know that the SMSC project which was undertaken by Gemma Kingston and I over the past 2 years has finally been completed! We now have 8 whole school days which can be used FREE by primary schools to provide CPD for teachers, fantastic learning for the pupils and an easy way to capture evidence for SMSC in a manageable way. There is a church schools ‘stream’ to each activity for church schools to deepen their learning according to their ethos.
The add- on packs can be used for schools who have mixed age groups or as part of a cycle to allow children to experience each element more than once in their school career. Please use these, and forward them onto any other schools you have contacts with – after all this work, we are very keen for this to get into the hands of teachers who can enjoy using them.
