Continuing Professional Development

The PTSA has a forward-thinking approach to professional development. We subscribe to the ‘research informed practice model’ used alongside joint practice development and transfer. We respond to data driven needs and can co-construct bespoke professional development responses. Our ‘Raising Standards in Reading’ is a perfect example. Here we are working with the UK Literacy Association, Plymouth University, University of St Mark and St John and 56 practitioners from the region to tackle a common challenge in primary and secondary schools.

Jim is active in promoting and developing research skills for practitioners and school leaders and delivers an entertaining and informative session for schools, MATs and TSAs. This can be the catalyst for new research projects and help individuals on their pathway towards Masters accredited by University of St Mark and St John or Plymouth University.

About our CPD Programmes

We aim to provide the highest quality CPD programmes. Drawing on the expertise of staff from within the Alliance and working in partnership with leading national trainers. Our CPD programme is needs-led; we ask all our Alliance members for their training priorities and build our programme in response.
