Gaining a qualification is the start of a rewarding career – and we never stop learning. Our best teachers will continue to proactively update their knowledge and expand their skill sets throughout their careers.

You can do this easily by taking regular Continuous Professional Development (CPD) courses.

CPDs are short, practical courses that will help you to stay up to date with industry changes, provide new ideas to keep your sessions fresh or enhance your skills to help you become the best teacher you can be.

Search through our wide range of CPD topics and contact the provider directly to confirm details, dates and bookings.
