Training and CPD

We recognise that supply teachers and teaching assistants do not have the same access to CPD and training opportunities as permanent staff in schools. Our CPD programme has been specifically designed to improve your skills and help you access new roles within schools. We use a combination of in-house workshops, external training partners and online courses to deliver specific, relevant training at times to suit your working day.

Check out the rest of this section for details of our courses, or email the CPD team for more information.
