Highly qualified and experienced staff lead and facilitate a range of professional development opportunities for the alliance. We are keen to respond to schools’ individual development needs and create innovative and rigorous bespoke programmes on a needs led basis. These range from individual staff training sessions to long-term whole-school development programmes. Wiltshire Council’s CPD opportunities can be viewed on RightChoice.
