Training & CPD

BEST Teaching School has 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.

Via the Central Bedfordshire CPD Online System ( CBC schools and staff are always able to view an up-to-date event directory of all the courses & workshops that the Teaching School and its partners are offering. It enables staff who register on the site to receive alerts about events and training opportunities which match their needs & allows them to easily request a place on any training session listed. It allows schools to authorise (or not) the bookings their staff have requested, and gives CPD Leaders the opportunity to view the events that colleagues have attended/ booked on and print relevant reports.  Every person registered has access to ‘My CPD Online’ – a section that records all the training events they have attended.

Our trainers are expert, practising teachers/leaders drawn from our key strategic partners and across other Central Bedfordshire 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.
