In-School CPD for individual schools or clusters/networks

Bespoke training can be provided for individual schools or established clusters/networks of schools. We can also provide any of our external training courses for schools as INSETs.

We actively encourage schools to identify common priorities across their clusters/networks and use training budgets in a cost-effective manner. In this way, schools can also develop cross-school peer support and create opportunities to strengthen the clusters/networks.

See below for popular individual school and cluster/network INSET training courses. These can be tailored for a range of audiences e.g. whole school, Key Stage specific, year group specific, teachers or teaching assistants.

If these suggestions don’t meet your CPD needs, please contact us to discuss a more bespoke approach to training.

Prices for INSET training and cluster/network training will be based on timetable options and final numbers of delegates.

Please contact Debs or Jane to discuss training needs, availability, timetable options and cost: debs@bced.co.uk or jane@bced.co.uk.

We are so grateful to BC Education for their help and support this year. We have changed our way of working and our children are flourishing.  An excellent mix of practical ideas, bespoke training and focussed assessment has impacted on our results, especially for our more-able children. Anne Main

Head Teacher, Croft Primary, Warrington

What we really liked about working with Jane is that teachers and TAs were involved in the training and all the training was bespoke to the needs of our children.  This was not a one-size-fits-all approach and we were happy to work hard to develop under her advice and consultation because we knew she thoroughly understood the children and staff at our school.  We are definitely on the right track now, and OFSTED thought so too in May 2018.
