The Direct Services to Schools website sets out training and development opportunities for the whole school workforce which will support schools in offering children and young people an outstanding education which significantly improves their life chances.

We provide opportunities for professional development in a variety of packages including central training courses for individual school staff or groups of practitioners as well as school based CPD, customised to a schools particular needs. Robust systems of quality assurance operate across all strategies to ensure all our workforce development is of the highest standard and offers good value for money.

Due to restrictions, many courses are currently being offered virtually rather than at the Professional Development Centre.  Where this is the case, the cost will be reduced by approximately 10% to that advertised.

We are also pleased to now offer an E Learning programme through ME Learning online platform.  Please click the E-learning button to see details of those courses currently on offer.  Please note these courses are not subject to the cost reduction for virtual training and will be charged at the costs advertised. 

Please note that to book all courses, you will need to register an account on the Direct Services to Schools website.
