Westbridge Teaching School Alliance

Continuous Professional & Leadership Development

Westbridge offers CPD for all staff based on their needs, experience and interest. From newly and recently qualified through to more experienced staff, we aim to provide an inspiring choice.

We aim to “Bridge the Gap” in CPD between what is available locally and nationally. Some CPD will be bespoke and tailored to the work strands of the Teaching School. Training will be both designed and delivered in house and commissioned from partners or independent consultants.
