Continous Professional Development/Training for Out of School

We provide a wide range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) opportunities to the children’s workforce through face-to-face training days, e-learning, workshops, network meetings, briefings and team or service away days.

Access to the learning offer ensures staff have the right skills, knowledge and expertise to work with and support children, young people and their families.

Where appropriate, our provision is multi-agency and multi-disciplinary. This ensures that the training is rich in value for any practitioner working with children and young people. Our experienced trainers are able to differentiate provision according to learning needs, roles or an organisations sector.

All CPD opportunities are listed on the Achieving for Children CPD Online website.
