Wider CPD

Our aim in time is to fill this page with a full suite of courses that are highly relevant and exceptional in quality. They will be refreshed regularly and split in to three domains:

  • Courses that are driven by emerging issues as identified by the Cumbrian system to tackle issues ahead of need.
  • Courses that supplement the already exceptional quality all through curriculum of ITT to NPQEL.
  • Courses that provide additional professional development in areas that broaden our workforce’s skills and experience for the impact they can have on the provision for our children. These are typically offered each term or year and are linked to the cycle of our system.
