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.

We are proud to have been selected as an accredited provider for the National Professional Qualifications serving the West Midlands. We are also excited to hear the government’s commitment to funding these programmes. From November 2017 the cost of these programmes will be covered in full for schools in Walsall, Wolverhampton, Dudley, Sandwell, Coventry and some parts of Staffordshire, Worcestershire and Warwickshire.


Most of these programmes are delivered at the purpose-built conference and training facilities, just off the M5, at the Windsor Business Centre  click here for a map.
