About our training

Our courses are fully aligned with the DfE standards for teachers' professional development and offer teachers both a chance to immerse themselves in enquiry, questioning and experimentation and innovative strategies and practical ideas to support literacy.

Guidance from the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) shows that professional development should be a priority for pupil premium spending - our courses focus on areas that most often create barriers for disadvantaged students.

"Thanks for an informative day - I'm going away with inspiration for my own practice and whole school CPD."
