Professional Development

Professional Development

A key aspect of any Teaching School is taking an active interest in the wellbeing and continued improvement of teachers throughout their career. By supporting them and introducing them to the capabilities of adventure learning, we hope to see generations of educators equipped with the tools they need to encourage the thinkers of the future.

Excellent professional development and opportunities are promoted for training teachers, current teachers, leaders, non-teaching staff and aspiring leaders showcasing new technologies and teaching techniques. An adventurous and growth culture is embraced in order to re-vitalise learning and challenge complacency for all those teaching, learning and leading. Professional and sustainable relationships are developed, based on trust and aspiration.

The Knowledge Innovation and Talent Exchange

We have developed a flexible training space which is being used for training events and meetings across the alliance.

Special Projects

We are currently pleased to be taking part in a number of projects funded by the EU.

Currently we are running a project called Developing Restorative Leadership in Health and Education. This is through funding from the European Social Fund and managed through the DWP (Department of Work and Pensions). We are offering training to those working in Education and Health who will be able to gain an ILM Level 3 Award in Leadership. We are working with RJ Working, Veor Surgery and Exeter University.
