Our Product in a Tin Competition is Taking a Break 

Our Product in a Tin competition will not be running for the foreseeable future. It’s been been a big success but takes a lot of organising, something that has become more of challenge due to impact of the pandemic. The competition is therefore taking a break to allow us to focus on our other work. The resources will remain on the website for schools to use as a module of work or as a competition within their own school.

Look at the face to face, blended learning and distance learning options we offer. 

Blended Learning CPD

Our blended learning courses are equivalent to a one day training course with 2 hours live online training plus at least 4 hours of self directed study activities. This type of course is ideal if you find it hard to get released from school or if you are looking for resources to provide you with a programme of activities as part of a personal directed time CPD programme. Click on each course to find out more.

Live Face to Face CPD

We're currently only able to offer a limited number of face to face courses although we hope to be able to increase the number of these in the spring and summer term next year. Click on the course to find out more.

Although we currently only offer a limited number of face to face courses on our course calendar, if you're looking for face to face training and can get together at least 6 participants, e.g. your department or a local group of teachers, along with providing a suitable room, we can run the following one day face to face courses for your group:

For more details on how we can run the above courses at your school see the link to the information sheet on each of the course pages.

Distance Learning CPD Courses

Our distance learning CPD courses can be worked through at your own pace without the need for time out of school and without travel and accommodation costs.
