BEST Education Services And School Improvement

CPD and Training

BEST Education Services and School Improvement Team have extensive experience of Continuous Professional Development (CPD), investing heavily in staff delivering and receiving professional development to and from schools across Central Bedfordshire and beyond. We offer high quality programmes for all phases and all school staff.

Our trainers are expert, practising teachers/leaders drawn from our key strategic partners and across other schools, creating a team of accessible and credible school based trainers. Our training is usually very local and delivered in schools. We seek to be pro-active, understanding the needs of our local schools so that we are able to respond to that need in a considered way. Often we are able to develop bespoke training for your setting.


Bespoke CPD Events.

  • Open Courses/Events
  • Bespoke in-house training

BEST Education Services and School Improvement Team offer 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. We are also able to arrange for training to be delivered  in-house.

Open Courses/Events

BEST offers numerous ‘open’ events each academic year. 

In order to request a place on any event, please book though our events calendar. On the calendar you will see green strips with the name of the course on it. Click on your chosen course's green strip. This will open up on your chosen course page and then click the purple 'book now' button which turns to gold as you hover over it. If there are multiple parts to a training course, you need to book through session 1. It will not let you book through later sessions.
