Train the Trainer resources

Please note this training material has been updated and developed into two new training courses: CPD Leadership: Essentials and CPD Leadership: Strategy.

We're proud of our library of download and deliver training materials. However, the challenge for you remains in delivering them effectively, and ensuring that training has an impact on the practice of colleagues, and achievement of pupils. 

With time at a premium, our bitesize Train the Trainer resources aim to help you make the most of your library of downloadable training materials, and will help you to:

  • identify common pitfalls of CPD: understand where CPD often goes wrong and how you can avoid common mistakes
  • collaborate and share practice: know how to embed opportunities for collaboration in CPD sessions and across the whole school
  • focus on coaching: identify what good coaching questions look like and how to use them to best effect.

Suggested participants

  • CPD leaders
  • Heads of department
  • Members of staff who deliver training sessions
