At CST, CPD means collaborative professional development, and the opportunities we provide are designed to complement the ongoing day-to-day practices that we encourage, including peer observation and feedback, joint practice development, networking (including through PLNs), personal reflection and research.
Our CPD offer ranges from year-long nationally recognised programmes accredited by external providers, such as UCL Institute of Education, to half-day or one-day training courses led by colleagues from within the Trust. They include:
- National Professional Qualifications for all levels of leadership
- Staff one-day and residential development conferences
- Expert-led training in areas such as attendance, behaviour and wellbeing, SEN and inclusion, assessment and safeguarding.
- New programmes and opportunities are made available every term in response to the changing development needs of our staff.
