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.

Professional development is so important and so personal, it is essential that schools get it right to attract, retain and develop staff of quality. Our whole school or whole department approach provides unique opportunities for teachers to work together to enhance and develop their practice while our coaching and mentoring programmes give a more personal touch to enhancing skills and practice.

Our teaching and learning courses can be tailored to address the priorities of your school. They can be adjusted to meet your objectives and CPD needs.
