Professional Learning
& Workshops

The Education Group provides a broad range of workshop opportunities to assist schools, leaders, teachers and non-teaching staff to improve their practice and be the most effective they can be. These interactive workshops will provide the opportunity to examine your current practice and consider ways to improve that further. It will also provide the opportunity to interact with people from other settings and to share ideas and approaches.

The Education Group personnel can also design an in-house programme to suit your needs where the number of participants allows. Get in touch for more details.
