Course Booking Information

The Training & Development Team aims to provide a range of opportunities to meet the identified needs of staff.  We hope that you will enjoy browsing through the courses available and welcome any comments or suggestions regarding courses you woud like to see on offer.

Course information is available on CPDShare, and update documents are e-mailed to establishments for dissemination to all staff.  If you have not seen a copy of the course update documents they are available here or from your School Office/Line Manager.

Once you have identified the course (or courses) that will meet your needs, and have obtained permission to attend, you can submit an application to the Team.  Applications should be made by e-mail.

When booking your place, please include the course reference (e.g. CPD025) along with your name, designation, e-mail address and workplace.

e-mail address for all bookings:

We aim to process and acknowledge bookings within a day of receipt, but please be aware that it may take little longer at peak times of the session (usually just after the schools resume in August tends to be our busiest time!).  Please note the details once your place has been confirmed, and ensure you are familiar with the start & finish time and the venue.

Any changes to the advertised details will be notified in your joining instructions, so please make sure you check this carefully when it arrives.  We aim to issue joining instructions two weeks in advance of the course.

Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.   When the course of your choice is full, we will do our best to offer you an alternative, or hold your name on a reserve list.  If you are on the reserve list this does not mean you have a place.

If you have any queries regarding your chosen course(s), please don’t hesitate to contact us.
