Primary training

We know that skilled and knowledgeable teachers have the most impact on pupils’ progress (see findings from the Education Endowment Foundation, and Education Policy Institute).

We have been providing professional development for teachers across the UK for many years. We work in partnership with local authority school improvement teams, local education partnerships, research schools, English hub schools, teaching hub schools, multi-academy trusts, initial teacher education providers and the Department for Education. You can also book onto a course directly with us.

Online training

We welcome requests from groups of schools. Many of the schools that we work with choose to collaborate with other schools either in their Trust, or local area to reduce training costs and optimise shared learning opportunities.

We recommend a group size of up to 12 participants per session, in order to maximise the opportunity for interaction and discussion. However, larger groups can be accommodated. All prices quoted refer to a group rate.
