What does the Portal do?
CPD is only effective if it makes an impact and supports school improvement and development.
The CPD Portal provides a single collaborative platform for all schools, supporting a school-led approach to CPD and wider school improvement. Use the Portal to find school CPD courses for teachers, teaching assistants, and wider support staff.
We continue to work in partnership with many organisations (DfE, RSC, LAs, Teaching School Council, Teaching School Hubs, Teaching School Alliances, the Education Endowment Fund, Whole School SEND etc) to deliver a live platform for collaboration and communication across the education sector. > Contact Us
The Portal is where school leaders, system leaders and educators can find:

CPD : Manage and promote your CPD Offer/Programme through one regional CPD platform
CPD opportunities and provision across a group of schools can be accessed from one place. Promoting events can be challenging; through the Portal, schools benefit from being part of something much bigger allowing them to increase their profile as a provider. The Portal allows schools and organisations to ‘test the market’ – they can find out what the existing CPD provision is before planning their CPD offer.
A school’s branding is retained across all their events and any system communications. The system is built around a self-service approach; Schools can create promote their CPD from one simple web based interface.
(Taunton Teaching Alliance estimate an 80% saving over manual backend administrative tasks after adopting the Portal to promote and manage their CPD Offer)

What Schools are saying about it...
"As a new teaching school CPD Portal has given us a fantastic base to establish our CPD offer and introduce efficiencies in the management of it. It has drastically reduced our workload and allowed us to establish straightforward and effective processes. Its a really intuitive system. We had an hours training to introduce us to the system. Users have also found it simple and easy to use. I would recommend it to everyone."
