Training & Development for Schools

Training & Development for Schools

We are committed in delivering high-quality, exciting, targeted and bespoke professional learning as required by our members. However, all businesses or schools both primary and secondary across the North West of England are welcome to access our training. The majority of our courses are delivered from the modern, comfortable and fully-equipped facilities at the Bury Development & Training Centre. We also provide in-school training for schools wishing to have more contextual content. Our rigorously quality assured courses cover topics such as Management, Outstanding Teaching, Assessment, Child Protection, Early Years, Special Education Needs and Health & Safety. We are constantly looking for ways to improve and develop our courses in line with the changing government agenda, the needs of our schools, and the children they serve.

Working Collaboratively with Governors
