Professional Development

Professional Development

Castlebar School offers a wide range of high-quality training opportunities for the whole school body designed to support and aid the drive for continuous school improvement. Our training has been developed through our own understanding and research into how pupils learn best and the most effective practice that makes a difference.

With the pace of change in education showing little sign of slowing, we have tailored our programmes to recognise the importance of training all staff, not only to be effective in their professional roles but also to prepare them for further successful responsibilities.

Our Professional Development Training Programme brochure has full details, including costs and venues.

Hopefully you will find a course to suit you, however if there are any topics not featured, then we are happy to provide bespoke training sessions for you and your school.

Alongside our collection of open courses we are also available and keen to work with schools on specific projects to benefit individuals, teams, staff groups and, of course, the school as a whole.

If you have a specific requirement, please contact us and we will be happy to discuss your needs, prepare a proposal for your consideration and deliver an informative and interactive session on your chosen theme.

The benefits of bespoke training (including on-site delivery of our open courses) are six fold:

  • Fits your school requirement exactly
  • Train all relevant staff in one session
  • Leads to consistent practice
  • Delivered flexibly with full day/half day/hourly options available
  • Cost effective
  • Delivered at your chosen location/school site or through webinar sessions

We also work in partnership with other organisations to deliver recognised programmes and qualifications.

Reservations can be made through Ealing CPD online or for further information do contact us directly at
