How users/participants can evaluate success

Schools and teachers are supported to evaluate the impact of training through a range of qualitative and quantitative measures.

Participants are asked to give written feedback on the quality of the training after each meeting and this is used to better understand the needs of participants as they proceed with the programme.

Follow-up activities and support

This programme can be run at distance via the internet, face to face or a combination of both depending on location and what is most convenient for participating teachers (see below for further details).

Formal follow up meetings for groups or individuals are offered to ensure on-going development.

Guidance notes and materials are offered throughout the programme and participants are invited to communicate via phone or email to discuss specific questions that might arise between the formal meetings. 


Initial training of a half or full day is ideally followed by a series of small group or 1:1 online coaching sessions. These meetings offer participants a highly supported opportunity to develop action research projects that are tailored to individual needs and interests.

Please make contact with the provider for a free consultation to discuss how this CPD can be tailored to meet your particular needs.
