These range from individual staff training sessions to long-term whole-school development programmes. 

The full range of programmes offered by the alliance can be viewed in our Service Offer, which you can view here, and Wiltshire Council’s CPD opportunities can be viewed on RightChoice.

Thank you for leading this excellent course. Your expertise and experience shone through and everyone had self-belief that they could put actions in place to improve children’s learning in our school. You engaged and enthused everyone. It has definitely been the most positive and beneficial teaching course I have completed. CPD Delegate
