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.  
dt-roadshow_med_hr
  • One day face to face courses - these are a more traditional course format with a more formal approach & an in depth focus on pedagogy. The higher cost of the course 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. 
vip-bespoke_med_hr
  • Online and distance learning courses - we are starting to develop our live online and distance learning courses to give greater flexibility for anyone looking for CPD options.
  • Information on current dates and venues for all types of courses can be found on the current course calendar.
