Continuing Professional Development

Working with teachers and other educational professionals within schools and colleges is integral to the success of our work. Whether you are an experienced practitioner or just starting out in an advisory role, we offer a range of continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities to support you as you guide your students.

Our specialisms in law and business allow us to be best placed to update you on both the sector and professions, so that you can inform your students and support their journey into higher education and beyond.

Teacher Forums

Our teacher forums are your chance as teachers of law, business or criminology, to:

  • Network with other teachers and advisors in your subject area and share best practice
  • Get updates from qualified lawyers and experienced professionals regarding a variety of careers
  • Meet our team and other contacts that you can call upon to help support your students, and discuss how we can help you further.

Our forums are held in November at each of our campuses.
