CPD and Events

CPD and events opportunities

We want to develop great teachers who will become the school leaders of tomorrow, and support the great leadership we already have. We run a wide range of CPD, training and networking events for school leaders, teachers, business managers and governors across the trust. Some of our events are also open to non-trust schools.
