About CPD in Gateshead

Developing school staff is one of our most important goals – we believe your team is the cornerstone of your success. We are committed to offering a wide variety of exciting and stimulating training courses and conferences that are underpinned by current research and initiatives. Our dedicated and high quality inspectors, advisors, consultants and trainers have a wealth of knowledge and expertise in their chosen fields.

We have a wide range of training programmes in a variety of subjects that are delivered centrally. These are clearly focused on major priorities in schools and informed by the latest research and current initiatives:

These can be on any of the following areas:

  • Leadership and Management – including support, guidance and development for newly appointed Headteachers, Deputy Headteachers, Heads of Department, Middle Leaders and Aspiring Leaders
  • Subject specific e.g. Maths, Literacy/English, Science, SEN, Early Years, Behaviour and Attendance, Assessment for Learning, Teaching Assistants and Support Staff
  • Thinking skills and personalised learning
  • Health and Safety in Schools, including First Aid
  • Safeguarding
  • Aim higher and career aspirations

You can rely on us to let you know what’s new in education.

We are able to offer a series of support, training and development packages to individual or groups of schools. These packages take many different forms and can be tailored to meet specific needs. We are happy to deliver either in your school or another venue of your choice.

We encourage professional debate to critically evaluate information and offer advice and guidance to foster confidence to develop a critical approach in the classroom and to raise self-esteem.

We offer links into national programmes such as:

  • National Professional Qualification for Headteachers (NPQH)
  • Leadership Programme for Serving Headteachers (LPSH)
  • Links to Higher Education Institutions (HEIs)
  • Youth Sport Trust
  • Leadership Pathways
  • National programme for Specialist Leaders in Behaviour and Attendance

We periodically offer inspirational education conferences with high profile, nationally renowned speakers in leadership and management and specific subject matter. Previous inspirational conference speakers include Michael Fullan, Sue Palmer, Johnny Ball, Pie Corbett, Mick Waters, Sir John Jones, Alistair Smith, Oscar Stringer, Ruth Sutton, Charles Desforges, Anne Goldsworthy, Galina Dolya, Shirley Clarke, Dr Bill Rogers, Hywel Roberts, Sir Tim Brighouse and David Cameron.

Our approach is founded upon understanding our audience requirements. We believe that inspiring conferences and events can be spring boards for motivating and inspiring people to greater performance and success.
