We offer a broad range of high-quality training and development opportunities for all school staff. We lead networks, facilitate training and host conferences. Our annual training and development programme provides a one-stop-shop for headteachers who wish to invest in high-quality professional development for their staff at the best possible price.
‘Led by schools, for schools’ – as an alliance of schools we know that there is nothing more frustrating than investing in professional development activities for your staff that don’t have an impact in the classroom. We work hard to ensure that all of our provision is relevant, up to date and informed by the latest evidence and research, which leads to lasting impact on the practice of participants, their school and its pupils.
Our professional learning programmes are designed in partnership with schools. We use a comprehensive quality assurance framework to ensure that our training and development meets the needs of schools and is of the highest quality. We work with some of the best and most renowned trainers and facilitators to ensure individuals who access our programmes improve their practice and schools improve their outcomes. Based on feedback, 99% of participants rate our training as good or excellent.
We ensure that all of our professional development and training is affordable to schools. As a trusted, not-for-profit organisation we keep the costs of our programmes to an absolute minimum whilst ensuring we provide schools access to the very best in terms of professional learning and development.
Our Training and Development Brochure contains the latest information about our courses, conferences and events.
You will find event overviews, details of dates, times and venues alongside information about the speakers and facilitators that will be leading our programme.
Our CPD subscriptions provide a cost-effective way for school staff to engage in our professional networks. Our network CPD programmes provide targeted professional development and networking for senior leaders, subject leaders, SENCos, early years specialists, classroom teachers and teaching assistants, school business managers and teachers in their early career.
Gateway have been leading professional networks for schools since 2012 and we are continually adapting and improving our provision based on feedback from teachers and leaders. Our programme is reviewed annually and updated to ensure it is fit for purpose and continues to meet the needs of schools.
Buying into our CPD subscription packages before the start of the academic year provides the best possible value for money for schools.
