Continuing Professional Development

It is our aim for all our events to develop excellent practice whether related to subject development, pedagogy, leadership or governance.  We are committed to ensuring that our training events support our schools and academies on their journey in transformational leadership.  Rather than focusing on what has to be done, our events are designed to inspire new thoughts, to challenge, to engage hearts and minds and to support you in developing young people to fulfil their potential.  Finally many of our events serve to unite us as a family of church schools and academies and as part of the wider church community.  With these aims in mind all of the CPD events are themed under the following headings:


  • Excellence
  • Transformational Leadership
  • Inspiration
  • Family


Quality Assurance

All associates working with the DBE are selected for their up to date content knowledge and ability to facilitate events using effective principles of adult learning.   All training venues are checked for their suitability and any issues are fed back immediately and followed up to a satisfactory resolution.  Each event is evaluated at the end of the session and a sample of attendees is followed up to measure medium and long term impact of their learning.



It is imperative that colleagues book places on to event.  Please email joanne.evans@covcofe.org
