About Our Courses

We run a range of courses as independent D&T consultants to suit different budgets and 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.  
  • Download a summary that gives you more details on each type of course we run as  independent D&T consultants. Information on current dates and venues for all types of courses can be found on the current course calendar.
