Blended approach to facilitation-

Given the circumstances we have decided to offer a blended approach to training next term.
We have taken the opportunity, where possible to move some events to online training but as you will appreciate some sessions don’t allow for the best possible learning opportunities by being ‘virtual’.
These offers will go out individually, where possible dates will not be changed to those listed in the training brochure (times will be altered slightly).
Leadership training, subject leadership networks and Excellent Maths and English Programmes will remain ‘face to face’ due to the nature of the sessions.
If you would like to secure places on any training events please contact: 
Paula Foster-
