Your Secondary CPD calendar spring 2021

We know that it's not easy for teachers to get out of school or have budgets to afford a plentiful supply of CPD under normal circumstances. At present we find ourselves in an unprecedented situation and we know that while teachers continue to provide a frontline service, most face-to-face teacher CPD has been cancelled or postponed. We know how essential your CPD is to you and that is why we have worked to provide a wider range of remote learning webinar based CPD to keep you going in these difficult times. That’s the beauty of the webinar – it doesn’t matter where you are; you and your colleagues can benefit from the best subject-specific CPD.

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. 

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.
