CPD Offer - Connecting Holsworthy with the best offers in the region

Holsworthy Community College (HCC) is a founding member of the Dartmoor Teaching School Alliance (TSA), one of the largest TSAs in the South West.   Dartmoor TSA offers an extensive range of CPD programmes for teachers at all career stages (see www.dartmoortsa.org.uk/courses). 

Dartmoor TSA works closely with two local TSAs - Exeter TSA and South TSA - in a partnership 'Teaching Schools South West' - which covers 180 schools in the greater Devon area. This enables us at HCC to achieve a close connectivity with other schools. For example, we are engaged in a SSIF 2 Project on Peer Review with 18 other secondary schools; we have Maths teachers engaged in an Outstanding Maths Teacher Programme with Craig Barton; our MFL department recently took part in a conference led by Gianfranco Conti. These are all high profile, national acclaimed programmes that through working in partnership with Dartmoor TSA we have access to. 

Dartmoor TSA has excellent leadership development pathways for middle and senior leaders that dovetail with the NPQ programmes. HCC is keen to support ambitious staff to progress through these programmes. 

Last year Dartmoor TSA provided training to 1100 teachers from over 100 schools; supported 26 schools through its 48 system leaders and recruited 31 trainee teachers for both primary and secondary programmes. 

All schools in The Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.

The successful candidate will be required to undertake an Enhanced Disclosure via the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
