Teacher and school leader professional development

Educational research shows that teacher quality is strongly correlated with student achievement.
We have a long history of providing professional development opportunities to school leaders and teachers all over the world. Through courses, qualifications and support we equip them with the skills to understand and implement your curriculum successfully.

How we can help

Our close collaboration with Cambridge University's Faculty of Education ensures that the latest research underpins our professional development services. As well as developing teachers, our services also include specific training programmes for school leaders, improving their leadership skills to effectively support the development of their schools and their teachers.

We can provide programmes that are subject specific or generic and cover all phases of education, from primary to upper secondary.

Our programmes build professional and personal development skills, all of which lead to better learning and better outcomes for students.
