Courses and Events

Our Learning and Development Programme is carefully designed to support school leaders and educators in many areas of school life.

Every academic year, the Education Team offer a wide range of training relevant to head teachers, subject leaders, teaching staff and governors working in schools across the Diocese.

The training and events on offer are carefully designed to support many areas of school life including school improvement, Christian distinctiveness, Governance and SIAMS preparation.

For 2022/23, we are offering our virtual and in person courses free of charge. Some courses are very popular and fill up fast – do book early to avoid disappointment. Additional training and support will be offered throughout the year so please subscribe to our Schools Bulletin for notifications of additional courses.

For in-person courses, where there may be a limit on the number of attendees, we reserve the right to charge a fee for no-shows.
