CPD training for staff

Discussion in 'Headteachers' started by KPSian, Feb 9, 2011.

  1. Hi all,
    Can anyone tell me the best way of getting the attention of heads of school when it comes to offering <u>Fully funded</u> nationally recognised qualifications that will train thier workforce. these range from qualifications for teaching assistants, bussiness administrators to first aid and food safety training.
    I understand that heads are busy so who within the school structure would be in the best position to not turn down <u>free training</u>?
     
  2. I would be interested! Deputy Head in charge of CPD - pm me please?
     
  3. No training is ever really 'free' though, since the covering of absent teachers costs money/time from lessons, there might also be travel time..
    I would imagine showing quotations from delegates[​IMG] and evidence of impact of training would be very useful in helping SLT see that it is worth while.
     

  4. We are a training provider in the east of England and have a significant pot of money from the SFA (skills funding agency) via the old Train to Gain initiative to support employers train thier staff.
    We specialise in providing training and qualifications for school workforce. We provide bespoke training which means that we tailor the training of staff to meet with schools reqiurements to ensure that there is minimal inconvinience to the normal school day. Examples of packages we deliver include one-one training whilst learners are on the job or group or individual training around suitable hours (i.e afterschool) or during hours not worked by staff, either way we dont reqiure the learners/staff to come to us we come to you.
    Please browse both the SFA website and our website www.aspire2learn.com, would be happy to provide further information.
     
  5. I take on that piont, but surely spending a little on time for a qualified and trained workforce will save time and money in the long run from not having to rectify mistakes or take significantly longer to complete tasks through lack of training and skills.

    We would be more than happy to provide recent case studies from schools who have signifcantly benefitted from training thier workforce and could ask them to compile a list of costs verses savings in the long run - thanks for this suggestion.
     
  6. I think your reply here is good, and I agree, I was only making the point as to why lots of fliers get binned. Good Luck, perhaps if you have a good website a link would be good.[​IMG]
     
  7. A shame that all of the ocurses you accredit are only really suitable for non-qualified teaching staff...
    Feel sure that if there was something you could also offer the teachers, you may see more results...
