CPD tailored to you

We spoke with Mark Cottingham, head teacher at Da Vinci School, to hear how a workplace cohort program has achieved greater creativity in teaching and learning. 

Natalie Kerslake, a local teaching assistant, talks about the valued support she has received from her lecturers and how part time study has enriched her professional practice in school.

Our key note speakers, Sally Fitton, School Improvement Advisor for Derbyshire County Council and Jo Hawkyard, Assistant Headteacher at Belper School focused on “How do we narrow the gaps in progress between students within vulnerable groups?
