Learning and Development Programme

Welcome to our 2016/2017 Learning and Development Programme. Here you will find details of courses for headteachers, governors and teaching staff in schools within the Diocese of Chelmsford.  

To book a place on Development Programme courses please contact the Education support officers, Yemi Ibrahim on 01245 294440 or Jill Smylie on 01245 294441 or education@chelmsford.anglican.org. Alternatively you can print the booking form at the end of the training brochure and return it by post or fax.

Most of the courses in the programme are available without charge to schools within our Partnership Agreement for those who choose to subscribe. Details of this are in a leaflet sent to schools along with their 2016/2017 course brochure.

We are also able to offer customised training for individual schools, clusters or deanery groups of schools. Please contact Yemi or Jill if you are interested in this option, and they will put you in touch with a team member who can discuss your particular requirements with you. These customised courses will not be covered by the Partnership Agreement so there will be a  charge – please contact your School Advisors for more details.

We hope the information in the training brochure will help you in planning your school’s training programme for the year.

Church School Leadership Course 2016

Introducing a one year Postgraduate Course designed for teachers, leaders and aspiring leaders of Church of England schools and academies.

Church School Leadership Course 2016 (Accredited) Following discussions with interested candidates and their schools, in order to allow candidates fuller opportunity to apply for grants and to enable schools to consider funding within their new budget, it has been decided to postpone the start of the accredited course until autumn term 2016. The course will now commence with the residential planned for November. This postponement will also provide opportunity to incorporate the anticipated and significant developments within the National Society's major new project on school leadership. A taster and information day will be held on 10th March 2016, 2pm -4pm, at The Diocesan Office, for those wishing to learn more of this accredited course. Application forms are available from Ruth Everett reverett@chelmsford.anglican.org. The closing date for applications is 15th July 2016, but early submission is advised to secure a place.
