Continuing Professional Development and training
Being a part of our supply team is not just about providing outstanding teaching each day, but it is also about continuing with your professional development (CPD).
At Key Stage Teacher Supply, we are proud to be a ‘local teaching agency’ that is committed to supporting your CPD throughout your time with us. Through our long standing partnership with Edge Hill University and other accredited trainers, Key Stage Teacher Supply provides various relevant training workshops throughout the academic year.
You will be advised via email of forthcoming workshops. Our training courses are held either on a Saturday morning or as a twilight session to ensure that you do not miss out on any paid work. They will be held in Blackburn, Lancaster and Chorley depending on demand and the circumstances surrounding the training.
You do not need to be registered with Key Stage Teacher Supply to join us on a training workshop, so please contact your local branch for further information.
