Professional Learning

The Gateway Alliance facilitates a wide range of professional development activities for all staff. We endeavour to maintain the highest possible quality at all times and ensure that all of our activities are relevant, meaningful in content and purposeful in application.

We offer a ‘Core Offer’ of CPD to schools which incorporates a range of training events and conferences for some of the key groups of staff within school. We also provide adhoc events throughout the year, based on current needs and feedback from our partner schools.

The Gateway Alliance has a proven track record of organising high quality learning events for schools and should our current programmes not completely meet your needs we would be happy to discuss your requirements further in order to create a personalised programme for your cluster, academy chain or trust.

Why choose Gateway?


Affordable – Gateway aims to ensure that all of our training and events are affordable to schools. We are a not-for-profit organisation and always ensure that we keep the costs of our programmes to an absolute minimum, whilst continuing to bring you the very best speakers and experienced facilitators with a proven track record of successfully supporting school improvement.

High Quality –  We use a comprehensive quality assurance framework to do all we can to ensure that our training programmes and events are of the highest quality. We only use high quality trainers and facilitators who have a track record of exceptional school experience and in developing and delivering high quality CPD opportunities. We always aim to offer the highest quality professional learning programmes and, based on feedback we received last year, 95% of attendees rated our events as good or excellent.

feedback responsive

Responsive & Relevant –  As an alliance of primary schools we are well aware of the challenges that schools currently face. We work hard to ensure that all of our training and events are relevant and up to date in their content in order to support schools to develop their staff effectively to meet the needs of current and future learners.


Impact –  As a group of schools we know that there is nothing more frustrating than investing in professional development activities for your staff that don’t impact on your school. We are therefore continually looking to refine and improve our offer, in response to your feedback, to ensure that all of our activities have a practical impact on the practice of those attending, their school and pupils.
