Education CPD Course schedule 2018

Sunday, July 1, 2018

Stafflex understand that supply teachers find it increasingly difficult to access Continued Professional Development (CPD) training and a result we have developed a new training programme for all our teachers and support workers throughout 2018.

All courses will take place in the evening’s or over the school holidays period to ensure that they do not interfere with any paid work.

Limited spaces available so if you would like to book a place for any of our upcoming training sessions, please email nemi@stafflex.co.uk or call 01484 351010.
