I think this style of training is fabulous.

Online Courses - 1 to 1 Tutor Support & Mentoring - Unlimited 24/7 Access

I wanted to say thank you for such an informative and useful course. I have taken a lot from it and can see the impact that some of the strategies are having on my Year 6 group.

I found the whole online learning experience very good. It was difficult to be 'live' sometimes so listening to them later at a time was great. The course tutor was excellent. I shall be using all of the information continually and I still have some articles on the reading list to keep my learning growing.

    2016 DFE Standards for Teachers' Professional Development

    Professional development should have a clear focus on improving and evaluating pupil outcomes

    We have clearly outlined course outcomes and goals and evaluate participants’ prior knowledge in order to ensure progression. Course tasks are designed to help participants evaluate impact on themselves, their school and the pupils.

    Professional development should be underpinned by robust evidence and expertise

    Course content is developed in line with current thinking and is thoroughly researched by our expert tutors. Course tasks are designed not only to fit in around participants day to day teaching, but also to link teacher practice to pupil experiences and outcomes. Task feedback and support is given to reinforce impact evaluation of teachers practice and the wider implication for pupils and the school. All our courses are independently evaluated to ensure intended outcomes and quality.

    Professional development should include collaboration and expert challenge

    Our eLearning environment and the content of the seminars and tasks is structured to encourage participants collaboration, tutor support and to challenge existing practices in order to develop more informed practice and better pupil outcomes.

    Professional development programmes should be sustained over time

    The online delivery and course models we use in our training ensures content and the learning experience is delivered over a period of time. Support and Mentoring is available throughout the duration of the course and course materials and seminars are available for an extended period after the course finishes.

    Professional development must be prioritised by school leadership

    The course outcomes are clearly outlined in our Individual Learner Plans so participants can plan and collaborate with leaders in order to develop on-going professional development strategies and plans. Our tasks and course feedback provides evidence to show school leaders and to provide forward planning for participants professional development and practices.

    Accessing the Courses

    Access to the course materials and eLearning area varies from course to course, most are for 1 term, tutor support is for the duration of the course. Although we encourage candidates to attend the seminars live, they are recorded and uploaded for all candidates. If candidates are unable to attend the seminar they can watch the recording and ask any questions via email. This format enables candidates to access the training at a time of their choosing. The tasks are planned to fit in with teachers’ work requirements. There is a forum area allowing participants to share information and ask questions. To access the eLearning site and online seminars you require a computer with internet access and speakers / headphones, or a smartphone or tablet with the relevant apps installed.

    "I think this style of CPD is fabulous. The resources are available and tutorials can be watched over and over. You can't get embarrassed because you're not sure about certain things and you can do it when you want to rather than on a specific day and spend as much time as you feel necessary."

    "I got caught up at work and was unable to attend the live session - but I got up early this morning and listened to it. Fabulous. It's helped reinforce what I'm doing and give me some new strategies."

    "I have found the course very useful. As I work part time with Senior Meetings, staff meetings etc after school the flexible nature of the course suited me and I found it very useful to be able to email you with specific questions so thank you for that and for your quick replies. I feel more confident"
