Tailored learning, improving school performance

We work with early years, primary and secondary schools to provide tailored training and development solutions to meet your requirements.

Solutions can be designed for support staff, teaching assistants, teachers, leadership teams and headteachers. Solutions range from individual modules to full postgraduate qualifications.

Drawing on our specialist staff from the University of Derby’s School of Education we offer an extensive range of subject areas including leadership and management, special needs and teaching and learning. You select the subject areas that you wish to focus on, and we tailor the content to specifically address your school development priorities.
