Course delivery

All of our Continuing Professional Development courses are delivered online, making them flexible enough for your teachers to fit learning around other commitments. It takes approximately 8 hours of online study to complete the course and your teachers can study at a pace that works for them.  

To complete the course, teachers will have to respond to mini challenges. Each CPD course is broken up into units, containing a number of learning objects including practical videos, instructional text and resources.  Each of these objects features discussion points that are designed to get teachers to share their ideas and their experiences. Your teachers progress by taking part and joining the discussion with their peers.

Mike Gershon is available throughout the courses to answer questions from teachers and to prompt discussions, as well as ideas, and there is a digital badging system to rate the interaction and contributions. A completion certificate is awarded at the end of the course.
