Thank you for visiting the Direct Services to Schools website.

Our training offer continues to take place; however all training courses are currently being completed virtually.  For some events, it is not possible to run virtually and therefore there may be a requirement to postpone until face to face events are possible.

When restrictions are eased and in line with Government guidance, we will be looking to offer a combination of virtual and face to face training.  When this happens we would like to assure you that enhanced cleaning and facilities have been implemented at the Professional Development Centre (PDC) to assist with social distancing.

Courses are available to book in the usual way, via the website. If there are any courses that you are looking to complete that are not detailed on the website, please get in touch and we can advise of availability.  Any training that is held virtually will be reduced in cost by approximately 10% to that advertised (please note this reduction does not apply for E-Learning courses).

Should you have any queries or wish to discuss any services, please email

We wish you all the best and look forward to welcoming you back to the PDC when we reopen.
