Throughout Cumbria, CDEC is well-known in the education sector for offering high-quality, up-to-date professional training in and around global learning and global citizenship.
CPD and Inset training
Through CPD and Inset training we support teachers, other education practitioners and professionals wishing to embed the global dimension and values-based teaching and learning into their curriculum or organisation. The ultimate aim is to ensure Cumbria is a beacon for global citizenship.
Whether you are looking for a twilight Inset session after school, a whole-day course for your organisation or an open course for one or two colleagues to attend, we are confident that we will be able to help you find what you need to support your staff.
Support to embed practice throughout your organisation
We aim through these training sessions to support you to embedding practice and methodologies throughout the school curriculum and organisation culture.
Here at CDEC, we pride ourselves in being able to adapt to your school's needs. We can run any of our courses specifically for your school or organisation or, if there is demand, as an open course for schools where a number of teachers from a variety of schools can come along.
Give us a call!
Get in touch to let us know what you need, how we can tailor a session to more closely meet your requirements and how it will work best for you and your colleagues.
