CPD and events

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.

Our CPD opportunities for each role are outlined below, and full details can be found on the events calendar.

School-to-school support

Incoming schools will join a strong and growing family with the relevant support structures designed to meet their initial and ongoing needs.  Each new headteacher will have a specific Head mentor and a nearby link school for support (within their Hub). We encourage school-to-school support in the form of monitoring and evaluation through learning walks and moderation, as well as teacher release to work across more than one school within hubs or more broadly across the Trust.
