We put on a number of courses and training events which we know are of the highest quality and aimed at ensuring good outcomes and impact back in the classroom and school.

For example we have put on Phonics training and Key Stage Two Spelling & Grammar.
Our partnership with Cornwall Learning and Babcock LDP ensures high quality Science and Maths Courses.

Leadership is not neglected. Chris Husbands, Director of the London Institute of Education, gave an afternoon of ‘What makes Great Pedagogy and we have had training on the Myers Briggs Personality Types.

In Autumn 2014 the acclaimed Guy Claxton’s Building Learning Power Seminar was held and was repeated May 15.
