Continuing Professional Development

preparing for inspection

“Valuable professional development delivered with clarity. Clear, concise and to the point.”
Matthew Edwards, Assistant Headteacher, Northampton School for Boys

At JMC we have a passion for developing teaching and learning. We offer a robust range of courses, all enriched with ideas, techniques and strategies to help bring out the best in the practice of all teachers.

Continuing Professional Development is so important and so personal, it is essential that schools get it right to attract, retain and develop staff of quality.
