Your Primary CPD calendar 2020

We know that it's not easy for teachers to get out of school or to afford  good quality subject CPD under normal circumstances. At present we find ourselves in an unprecedented situation and most face-to-face teacher CPD has been cancelled or postponed. We know how essential your CPD is to you so we are providing a wider range of webinar based CPD to keep you going in these difficult times. 

New this year: By popular demand we are giving teachers another chance to view recent webinar highlights. This term we will be releasing recordings of previous webinars for a limited time period. Each recording will be accompanied by an optional Q&A from the presenter(s).

Please note that all live webinars will take place from 4–5pm unless stated otherwise. All our live webinars are recorded and the recording link will be made available to all registered delegates.
