Our Teaching & Learning Partnership team is made up of former SLT-level teachers who are on hand to liaise with you and your school to pinpoint any areas for further development and will work with you to create tailored CPD sessions to help you be the best educator you can be. We also have CPD sessions held at multiple locations around the country which are free to attend for all teachers that cover a variety of supplementary topics.
