A key role for our Teaching School is to continually improve ourselves and our schools. We know that this investment will reap dividends in the months and years ahead and as such our packages are based on the following principles and aims:
1) To continually renew our knowledge and learning and in doing so, providing a world class curriculum offer to our pupils.
2) To search out evidence based, impactful approaches to learning which are proven to maximise the progress of our pupils and create training to help our partners to build a world class offer where exceptional progress is the norm.
3) To ensure that all staff in our schools are given the opportunity to improve and better themselves with the ulitmate intent that this benefits the pupils we teach.
We work very closely with our partner TSA, STAR Academies and Blackburn Diocesan Board of Education in order to offer an extensive and comprehensive portfolio of CPD Events and Programmes that meets the needs of all schools in and beyond our local area including: A wide range of NPQ's, Statutory Safeguarding Training, Early Career Teacher Programme
and much more - please see CPD Portfolio document attached below.
The CPD Portfolio will continue to expand to include professional development provision from an increasing number of partners. We feel it is vital that busy colleagues in schools can quickly find and access professional development which meets their school improvement priorities and is of a high standard.
Please note that the attached portfolio includes links to every course on offer so you can quickly book for events or find out more.
