About our training

Find out how our expert training courses can help with your professional development.

We understand that time in the classroom is precious, educating the next generation of scientists, engineers, artists and entrepreneurs. We realise that as your career develops, the skills and knowledge you need to do your job change. That's why we've designed a range of courses to help you meet the requirements of the latest subject specifications, with sessions available for both secondary and post-16 schools and colleges.

Our training provides relevant knowledge and support when you need it and however it suits you – whether that’s online, in your school or college, or at one of our venues across England. Our trainers bring a wealth of experience based on their own background in teaching and from working as assessors for AQA.

Whether you are an NQT or an experienced teacher, our training can support you and your team by enhancing subject matter expertise, improving core teaching skills and providing support when the curriculum changes.
