Training for Outside ASSET

ASSET education is committed to the learning and development of all its staff. We believe that staff are our greatest resource and that well trained, confident and motivated staff who are passionate about their personal growth leads to well run schools with excellent teaching and to great outcomes for our pupils. Staff who are enabled to be at their absolute best, in turn enable our pupils to be the best they can be.

ASSET engage is our staff learning and development hub - for us CPD is not about ‘going on a course’ which ticks a box but has no impact on your working practices . It is about engagement between our staff, our schools working together, about self motivated study, research, inquiry and reading, and about looking beyond our trust for expertise, innovation and examples of great pedagogy which make a difference to children’s learning.

Where we do offer traditional training courses we ensure that the facilitator or provider is of the highest quality and we encourage feedback and reflection to ensure that learning is embedded.

We aren’t currently able to offer training to colleagues beyond our trust but in the past we have hosted such things as;

  • moderation

  • year group expectation training

  • first aid courses

  • ‘drawing and talking’ training

  • a popular ‘databusting’ conference with Jamie Pembroke

We will return to offering training to other schools as soon as it is safe and practical to do so. In the meantime, why not follow our social media accounts @assetengage on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram where we regularly post links to interesting blogs and research and will advertise up and coming training as it happens.
