At NACE, we believe teachers’ ongoing professional development is critical to meeting the needs of more able learners, and the key to providing a challenging and enriching education for all learners.

Alongside our programme of courses and conferences, we provide flexible in-school CPD, consultancy and review services for individual schools, clusters and alliances, across England, Wales and internationally.

Our team of specialised trainers and consultants are available to deliver in-school training, consultancy and review, tailored to meet the needs of your staff, school and learners.

Our approach is flexible: we can develop a bespoke day, series of sessions or undertake consultancy and support school review and planning.

In addition, any of our current courses can be delivered specifically for your school or group of schools, as well as a wide range of subject-specific workshops.

Quality assurance

Our CPD delivery is governed by a code of conduct whereby all training is quality-assured and focused on enabling individuals and schools to raise standards in learners’ achievements, progress and aspirations. Each course is designed to deliver key pedagogical knowledge and leadership skills, with links made to relevant curriculum and policy developments. Courses align with the DfE Standard for Teachers’ Professional Development. View our code of conduct.

Feedback from past participants in our CPD courses and in-school training…

“Fantastic CPD. Useful, practical, engaging tips, strategies and resources.”

“Real insight into challenge and what this means, delivered by people who know their stuff.”

“The school is positively buzzing. All of us found the sessions useful and many have commented on the ease with which they could adopt and adapt the techniques you demonstrated. We are grateful to you for not only enthusing and motivating us all at the start of a new academic year but also for reminding us of what we do well.”

“Relevant, practical, ‘do-able’ and inspiring ideas from each speaker. Excellent range of workshops.”

“A superb day with so much information and practical ideas to take back and implement at school. Great balance between listening and interacting with others.”
