Continuing Professional Development (CPD)


At the heart of Bright Futures Training lies our fantastic Continuous Professional Development (CPD) offer and we believe that CPD is a fundamental part of improving teachers’ practice and therefore, it should be prioritised by school leaders as part of a school improvement journey.

Professional development should support teaching and non-teaching staff in developing their knowledge and expertise, supporting sustainable improvements in student outcomes. Investing time in developing knowledge and skills helps school staff to grow professionally and to remain competent, effective and innovative within the classroom.

Continuing professional development is most effective when it involves collaboration with peers and is steeped in evidence and research.  Every professional development opportunity must seek to explore the collective expertise of the whole profession to be able to better understand its effectiveness in the classroom. Bright Futures Training supports this by offering a range of coaching and mentoring programmes that cultivate a culture of ongoing effective professional learning.  Our programmes seek to develop evaluative practitioners who are sufficiently equipped to consistently assess the impact of their practice and professional development on the students. Alongside this, our range of programmes extends teaching repertoires, maximises performance in the classroom and develops and supports school and system leaders to create a culture of professional development that is rich in research.

All of our programmes at Bright Futures have received outstanding evaluations; are challenging, and engaging and have undergone rigorous quality assurance processes.  Furthermore, as a responsive learning organisation, our programmes are driven by and rapidly respond to what is at the forefront of educational change.
