As well as our main, trust-wide CPD offer, we also run various conferences based on trust priorities (this year our focus was on writing). There are also CPD opportunities at a more local level through CPD run in our clusters and by small groups of schools. This allows us to put on training that is accessible to all staff, and has included training specifically for Teaching Assistants and also for Site Managers. We also make use of an online training platform that gives all staff access to role-appropriate training – including annual refresher training in Safeguarding and the Prevent Duty.

We believe that the quality of our School Effectiveness Support is a key benefit of CDAT membership.
