How CPD benefits your school

Our CPD courses are led by dynamic, well-qualified and experienced trainers. They will enhance the Catholic life of your school and help you meet objectives in the current Catholic Schools Inspection Framework so that:

  • Pupils have a clear understanding that the school community is committed to following the teaching and example of Jesus as expressed in the Gospels, the social teaching of the Church and the school’s own particular charism.

  • Pupils gladly embrace their personal responsibility to care for our common home, pursue the common good and serve those in need.

  • Pupils take a leading role in responding to the demands of Catholic Social Teaching and are proactive in finding ways of responding, locally, nationally and globally. They can clearly articulate the theology underpinning their actions.

Other benefits of our CPD:

  • support for your school's ethos and mission

  • practical tools, knowledge, skills and resources to enrich your curriculum

  • ideas to inspire students to put their faith into action as global citizens

  • boosts staff confidence in supporting your school's life and mission through global justice learning

  • helps broaden your curriculum and deepen your school’s care for our common home.
