Continuous Professional Development
Continuous Professional Development is integral to Yarrow Teaching School Alliance’s vision of excellence. Having worked together as an Alliance to identify need across our schools, we have put together a programme of professional development that is relevant, robust and effective. All courses are delivered by Lancashire's Numeracy and Literacy team who have a wealth of experience, both within the area and nationally.
Courses are free to Alliance members and carry a nominal cost for non-members. Courses are advertised both on the Alliance’s monthly newsletter and on the YTSA website, along with details of how to apply for places.
Alliance partners are encouraged to organise INSET training days on the first Monday after October half term, and on the first Thursday of May in order that they can participate in Cross Alliance training - a chance not just to hear great speakers but to mix with colleagues from other schools and build lasting relationships.
All courses are held at St George's CE Primary School, Chorley - the Teaching School
Alliance members wishing to attend the training are asked to book on the courses
