Continuing Professional Development
The Venn Colleges invest in the development and training of all our staff and use their collective approach to source the highest standard of external CPD and training materials. Through collective approach to CPD we are able to share development experience and source the highest quality trainers.
Working collaboratively, the five member colleges provide internal training opportunities for aspiring leaders, including programmes for colleagues aspiring to run departments and larger teams, and those whose ambitions lie in a future senior leadership position.
As a group of Colleges we individually and collectively invest in the professional development of our staff, we believe that supporting individuals in their professional and personal development is key to maintaining our high standards of teaching and ensures we are are always at the forefront of new developments within education. Our forward thinking, strategic approaches to CPD means our College staff have the most relevant sector skills
