With our reputation for high-quality and dynamic Continuing Professional Development, Teaching Schools South West is delighted to launch its CPD Offer for the next academic year 2020-2021.
This is a comprehensive Offer that covers a broad range of motivating and meaningful training for schools – including Teaching Assistants, Teachers, Leaders and Governors that covers all phases and school types and is career-wide from NQT to Aspiring Heads.
Particularly rewarding, the Offer is school-led and the majority of courses are designed and delivered by specialist teachers and leaders from within schools, often working with expert partners to provide quality training as professionals who understand the up-to-date needs and benefits of our profession.
Furthermore, the offer provides the best of regional and national CPD; as well as the best research, so that this combination can bring schools the best possible practices in the best possible formats so that ultimately the best possible outcomes are achieved for teachers and pupils.
We believe our CPD Offer represents great value for money. We are proud that TSSW is a partnership of not-for-profit Teaching School Alliances, a Research School, Multi Academy Trusts and Schools – with the majority of the programmes below the rates of commercial providers and for TSSW members the benefits are often multiplied.
Looking to next year and supporting school-evaluation, the CPD Directory will also be a strategic document for schools to use as part of the appraisal process, enabling colleagues to identify training plans to support their development targets.
With the added impetus of the Covid-19 return phase, we look forward to an exciting new academic year and believe the CPD Offer will play an important role in supporting colleagues across the schools within our region.
