Schools Training, Support and Events

The Education Department aims to empower schools and their community through up-to-date support and training.  We offer a range of training designed to meet the needs of our church schools, including equipping them with the tools to identify and develop their Christian distinctiveness.  This includes a clear focus on supporting schools to live out their school’s distinctive and unique Christian vision and ethos.

For this year, our training is brought to you through a mix of face-to-face and online opportunities.  Please take a look in the attached brochure and in the drop-down sections below where you find links to book online.

If you cannot find what you are looking for or would like bespoke training for your school please complete the Online Training Request Event Form below with as much information as possible so that we can then discuss next steps for you.

We look forward to welcoming you to our training events this year.  If you any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact a member of the team
