Bespoke CPD courses for maths and English teaching, learning and assessment (Code: C0520)

Bespoke courses are specially designed 'in-house courses' that aim to meet the specific CPD needs of your organisation. Where several organisations have discussed or suggested similar training needs or requirements, individual bespoke courses may also be converted into 'open, bookable courses', enabling collaborative CPD and a shared exploration of specific areas of teaching, learning and assessment practice.
