Be the best

To produce the best learning experiences for our pupils, we believe it’s essential to offer tailored Continuous Professional Development (CPD) opportunities for both teachers and support staff.

The United Learning Institute, our online leaning portal, provides a wide range of inspirational development programmes and opportunities – much more than we could offer as a single school.

Extensive CPD

Our extensive CPD facilities include:

  • Talent identification processes to promote staff internally.
  • Leadership development to prepare our staff for potential promotion.
  • A pathway of bespoke training opportunities for every member of staff.
  • CPD within school clusters, using shared resources and facilities to identify strengths and weaknesses.
  • Meetings with other United Learning staff from similar roles to share ideas and best practice solutions.
  • Regular peer reviews with action plans that include the option to pursue professional qualifications such as a Masters or NPQML/SL.

United Teaching

Teacher Training

Staff starting their career as a teacher can take advantage of our Initial Teacher Training programme, United Teaching. It offers training while you teach, inter-school training and curriculum planning, as well as support from mentors and tutors across the Group. You can request a specific school to train in, and you can also take up your second placement within the Group. If you remain in the Group following qualification, you access the opportunity of rapid promotion to higher roles. Within just a couple of years, some of our trainees have gone on to become heads of year or department.
