Professional Development

Forthcoming CPD

Upcoming Training Events

This page gives you a view of when our development sessions are running. If you click on the title of the CPD you will get to a flyer with lots more detail.


The evidence shows that programmes which are spread over a number of months and a series of sessions help professionals to embed their learning more effectively and implement their learning for the benefit of pupils. For this reason many of the programmes that you see below are part of sustained programmes of development.

Most of these programmes are delivered at the purpose-built conference and training facilities at the Windsor Business Centre  click here for a map.
