Apologies for the blog title!

These CPD sessions are offered after school-hours, designed to suit my needs versus the demand for people to have me speak in all corners of the UK. I am inundated with requests, yet saying ‘yes’ to everything is impossible to do whilst working full-time as a senior teacher. As much as I enjoy working with other teachers, my primary focus is the work in my school. Therefore, I’ve been offering webinars since August 2016 which allows me to reach my audience without having to leave my school or travel long distances. I can also choose when to work, which means I can be at home more often and offer content to suit teachers and schools; just ask!

The training is informal, recorded and interactive. Most of all, I thrive on leading them and connecting with my followers.

For less than the cost of a cup of coffee to help cover the costs of the software, I am offering resources and my experience to those interested in developing themselves or the work that they do in their school. The costs will also be invested back into this website to ensure quality content, demand and engagement.

To attend any webinar, together with a video recording of the session, please visit this page and scroll to the bottom to fill in your details. Please ensure you specify the date and title of your session before making any payment.

Thank you and I look forward to working with you.
