TeacherTapp survey data shows 93 per cent of teachers believe CPD would make them better teachers.

Academic research reveals 35 hours of high-quality CPD a year is almost as impactful as placing a teacher with 10 years’ experience in front of students, according to the Education Policy Institute and Ambition Institute.

“As a school the Learning Partnership has been fabulous in supporting our subject leaders. I have valued the helpful and supportive forums for Head Teachers that run across the year.” Headteacher, Partner School 

“Joining the Learning Partnership has enabled our group of 27 schools to engage in high quality CPD led by excellent educational consultants. Although we only recently joined, our schools have already reported a positive impact on all areas of school improvement including curriculum design and leadership.” Headteacher, Partner MAT

“The courses are relevant, current, very well presented and are timed to minimise disruption to the school day.” Headteacher, Partner School 

“The huge variety of courses on offer means that there is something for all of our schools irrespective of school improvement focus.” Headteacher, Partner School 

“Geography has been excellent, it’s very much a 2-way process and we can contribute to the sessions.” Subject Leader, Partner School
“The courses are very efficient and resources are sent promptly. We’re able to ask the trainers what questions we would like to be answered at the start of sessions, so the trainers can try and answer these throughout.” Subject Leader, Partner School 
“The trainers are very well informed in their subject matter.” Subject Leader, Partner School 
“Clear and concise information. Each training focuses on a unit in History. Helps support my subject knowledge.” History Subject leader, Partner School

More About The Partner School Programme

Becoming a Partner School of the Learning Partnership not only gives schools free and unlimited access to our online CPD courses throughout the year, it also provides schools with more hands-on support and guidance from our consultants to help develop your CPD strategy.

The Learning Partnership will meet with your school on a termly basis to help guide and develop your CPD strategy, in line with your school development plan. It will also give you exclusive access to our school-to-school support network, and the opportunity to shape, present and attend our Partner School Webinar programme – aiming to facilitate meaningful collaboration and sharing of best practice among our member schools.

And, best of all, this will all come at a simple and easy to understand fixed annual cost.

Of course, schools and teachers will also be able to book onto individual courses as they have previously done so.


Individual teachers e.g. supply staff, can also join the Partner School CPD suite. This is charged from 1st September 2024 at £75+VAT per person

We can also offer individual teachers whose schools have chosen not to subscribe, but wish to engage themselves, access to the CPD programme within the Partner School offer from 1st September 2024 at £75+VAT per person
