About Our Courses

We run 3 types 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.  
  • 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. Content is continually updated but generally they remain the same each year. Current VIP Bespoke courses are listed above and others that we run but which we have no current dates for are listed towards the bottom of this page.     
  • Download the summary below 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.

Other courses we run

The above courses are ones we run as independent D&T consultants. We also run courses on behalf of other training agencies, in particular we deliver a few bursary funded courses on behalf of the National STEM Learning Centre. Visit the current course calendar & look out for the bursary funded label (the bursary is available to state funded schools or academies and it pays the course fee and in some cases for accommodation).
