Continuing Professional Development

Invest in your professional learning with DfE approved programmes

Ensuring your have expert teachers in every classroom is the single most impactful school improvement strategy to raise outcomes for children, particularly the most disadvantaged.

Vantage Teaching School Hub can support Local Authorities, Multi-Academy Trusts, schools and colleges by co-ordinating the design and development of your own CPD programmes by utilising our network of expertise across the region. Contact us for more information here.

We signpost schools to evidence informed CPD from our partners in the Research Schools’ Network, NASEN/Whole School SEND, and the national Hub network. These partners will provide you with the evidence informed CPD programmes to support your improvement journey.
