About Our Courses

We run a range of courses to suit different budgets and needs. Most courses are run by my both Julie and Paul Boyd, although occasionally we run courses on our own. Between us we have extensive experience of working in a variety of different schools and in industry,  which means we are able to offer experience and support across a wide range of needs.

  • D&T:Connect - our lowest cost course which is a 2 hour after school CPD event (note this is not a Teach Meet but is a formal CPD event). This is a low cost event designed to support teachers who find it difficult to access CPD. Find out more
  • D&T Roadshows -  The focus is on delivering theory work through practical and the day is a ‘light touch’ event packed full of hands on activities. The course travels the country with new content each academic year. This is a low cost event designed to support teachers who find it difficult to access CPD. Find out more.

  • Mid price range courses are a more traditional course with a more formal approach & an in depth focus on pedagogy. The pricing of this course aims to support schools that have a more limited budget whilst still offering a high quality course. 
  • VIP Bespoke courses - The full monty! This is one of our traditional courses and the higher cost reflects the depth of content that is covered, the personalised nature of the course and the substantial resources delegates take away. Numbers are deliberately kept low in order to provide a more personalised day. These course focus more on specialist content covering specific aspects of the curriculum e.g. A level, exam success.

  • Information on current dates and venues for all types of courses can be found on the current course calendar.
  • Courses run on behalf of the National STEM Learning Centre - As well as our own independent courses we run some bursary funded courses on behalf of the STEM Centre (the bursary pays for most of the course fee and in some cases for accommodation). Look for the bursary funded heading on the course calendar.
