The two-year in-service courses consist of three modules: the first, common to both certificates will include the history of boarding schools, child protection issues and implications of the Children Act. The second, for non-teaching staff, will emphasise child health and development, while the teachers' course will focus on management. The final one for both will be work-based, allowing staff to develop their expertise on specific projects.
A venture between the Boarding Schools' Association and Roehampton Institute in south London will lead to two of the first professional boarding school qualifications for both teachers and support staff.
