LearningShared CPLD Offer 2021-22

Header image showing previous development day


Reflecting on the past 18 months we are still in awe and full of admiration for the way in which everyone in our sector approached the pandemic with calmness, expertise, resilience and unwavering commitment to students and families in the darkest and most challenging of times. The way in which our EfL / LearningShared community came together to share, collaborate and support each other has been inspiring.

We have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback and engagement with the podcast series and accompanying panel discussions with LearningShared growing organically and almost taking on a life of its own. Conversations with many schools and colleagues over the past 12 months have prompted our thinking as to how we might further develop the LearningShared offer. The educational landscape as always continues to change at a significant pace. The dissolution of almost all Specialist Teaching Schools and the potential loss of expertise across the system is something that is causing particular concern to many of our colleagues.

It is against this backdrop that we have been exploring the potential of creating a LearningShared CPLD offer that draws on the wealth of knowledge, expertise and most importantly connectivity across our community.

Following consultation with 100s of colleagues across the community we are excited to announce the upcoming launch of a brand new professional development and learning programme…


LearningShared: A Responsive Programme of CPLD

This comprehensive programme has been designed for both specialist and mainstream colleagues and will be led and delivered by significant and nationally recognised practitioners and experts within the LearningShared community including:

Prof. Barry Carpenter CBE OBE PhD FCCT, Diane Rochford OBE and Vijita Patel NLE (Principal, Swiss Cottage School DRC)

The programme is made up of 6 modules (see below), with each module consisting of:

  • Pre-recorded lecture / presentation
  • Module-related case studies from leading schools
  • Live interactive panel discussion with Q & A
  • Signposted further reading
  • Suggested developmental questions and activities to consider in your own school

Illuminations, contributions and case studies will be provided by outstanding school leaders and practitioners from within our community of practice.

The LearningShared CPLD Programme offer draws on the wealth of knowledge, expertise and most importantly connectivity across our community.
