Faculty of Education Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hub

We are delighted to be able to present you with a range of opportunities to engage with our academic colleagues across the Faculty of Education in relation to their areas of expertise and research. As a faculty, our vision is “to work collaboratively with others to enhance life chances” and we hope that this is another way we can do this.

If there are any particular topics you would like to see appearing more regularly or you have suggestions for others, please contact us on [email protected] to let us know. We have themed the CPD offer into:

  1. Behaviour and wellbeing
  2. Curriculum
  3. Early career teacher sessions
  4. Evidence-based practice

These sessions should meet your needs, but let us know if there are other sessions or additional content that would be helpful. We have the expertise to support professional development across education including, but not limited to:

  • Practitioner research for teachers
  • Learning outside the classroom
  • Special educational needs
  • Dyslexia
  • Leadership
  • Early years education
  • Primary curriculum and pedagogy
  • Secondary curriculum and pedagogy
  • Mentoring and coaching
  • Subject-specific support in sciences, mathematics, modern languages, physical education and computing
