What Are They and Why Are They Important
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses combine various methods of learning such as workshops, conferences, e-learning and the sharing of ideas to continually improve an individual’s professional development.
There are a number of CPD courses that can help you in your development whilst working in a school. At Envision Education, we are very excited to be offering 7 CPD courses absolutely free of charge when you register with us for work (normally they are £144.50 if you purchased them separately).
These courses will enable you to learn more about policies and procedures within UK schools, help with your professional development, and you will also become more ‘employable’ with the schools that we work with.

You are able to complete the courses online in your own time, and will receive a certificate upon completion of each course.
Through engaging in these courses, you will ensure that you are continually improving your skills, and showing the school that you understand the importance of keeping up to date in terms of relevant guidelines and how best to protect and nurture the students. Not only will completing the CPD courses show a commitment to your own development, it will look great on your CV!
