CPD Short Courses for teaching professionals at all levels
We have a special CPD summer offer on a selection of short courses starting 13 July 2022. These online courses are suitable for qualified classroom teachers, teaching/learning assistants, study skills tutors and those working overseas. The courses are delivered entirely online and do not require access to a student or learner, so would be perfect to complete over the summer break.
Our courses focus on nurturing the development of learners within the classroom/learning environment both with and without specific learning difficulties. Tutor support is given throughout the duration of the course.
Structured CPD gives employees a clear path to success within their current role and progression to future ones. Employees in regulated industries (e.g., healthcare, education, assessment) can lose their licence to practice if they don’t maintain their CPD.
