Your Secondary CPD calendar Spring 2024

We know that it's not easy for teachers to get out of school or have budgets to afford a plentiful supply of CPD. We know how essential your CPD is to you and that is why we have worked to provide a wide range of online learning and webinar-based CPD to suit all budgets. It doesn’t matter where you are or what your budget is; you and your colleagues can benefit from some of the best subject-specific CPD around, especially if you are members of the HA. As a member you'll gain preferential rates to all our CPD and benefit from a number of exclusive free member sessions each year. In addition, corporate members also have the opportunity to benefit from access to one free paid recording per year.

Please note that all live webinars and meetings 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.
