Teacher CPD

Helping you tackle the tricky issues

What are our CPD sessions?

As former teachers, we know the challenges that teachers face issues both in and outside the classroom.

Bullying, mental health, the online world - all of these issues are incredibly nuanced and it can be difficult to know how we can help our students effectively. This is why, this year, we have started offering CPD sessions to give teachers a supportive and non-judgemental space to ask the questions they need help answering.
