Bespoke CPD Events and more about Central Bedfordshire CPD Online

  • Open Courses/Events
  • Bespoke in-house training

BEST Teaching School offers an extensive range of CPD events at local venues where school staff have the opportunity to access high quality professional development and meet colleagues from across Central Bedfordshire and beyond. BEST Teaching School is also able to arrange for training to be delivered  in-house.

Open Courses/Events

BEST offers approximately 120 ‘open’ events each academic year. 

To review what is currently on offer (and events that have taken place previously), go to and use the calendar on the right hand side, or use the search facility.

In order to request a place on any event, an account linked to a school included in our drop down lists is required. To create such an account click ‘new user’ on the left hand side. If the educational establishment that you work at is not included in the drop down lists you will need to e-mail to request assistance.

CPD Online gives those set up on the system as CPD Contacts the ability to check which staff members are booked to attend events and which have already been attended, as well as the certainty that no member of staff can book themselves to attend anything without the school having first authorised it.

The User guide and CPD contact guide is available via the Help tab on
