A number of training and CPD options and packages are available
One day courses on a range of subjects take place throughout the year at different locations. These courses aim to provide hands on, practical solutions for teachers and school leaders. For specific details regarding individual courses, please click here to see what training events are coming up.
Inset or twilight training in school. These sessions can include content from the training events described above or bespoke training can be provided, with content being tailored to meet the individual requirements of each school. Please contact me directly to discuss your needs and requirements. Before these sessions take place, I will work with school or curriculum leaders to develop a training agenda which targets the needs of your school and again, practical solutions will be shared during the session. Follow up sessions can also be arranged.
Bespoke consultancy work is available for individuals or groups. Again, the content of this will be very dependent on the needs of your school and staff. Morning or whole day sessions can be booked and as with training delivered in school, an agenda will be arranged in advance to ensure that the desired outcomes are achieved and time in school is used to its maximum.
Time4Teachers bespoke parent support packagesare great ways for parents to support their children in improving their reading and writing skills at home. Parents are sent weekly support material, based on a chosen text and outcomes of previous sessions, over a six week period. This is a great way for parents to actively support their child’s education. It is also a fantastic way for schools to use their Pupil Premium money to support their pupils closing any learning gaps.
