Learning Cultures design and deliver high quality, well researched continuing professional development (CPD) for teachers and managers. The Learning Cultures coaching model creates opportunities for those who attend our training whether off-site or in-house to develop a range of skills and resources to cascade their learning to others so that the training has a positive and lasting impact on school improvement.
The training and consultancy programmes written by our expert team at Learning Cultures are designed to support schools manage the current and ever changing education policy decisions, curriculum re-design and the need for all staff and managers in school to have the expertise and the evidence that OFSTED or ESTYN are looking for.

The Learning Cultures philosophy aligns closely with the recent legislation that enshrines performance management systems into law and requires all schools to link appraisal to the school development or improvement plan and to the ongoing need for all staff to have the relevant Continuing Professional Development (CPD) that allows them to achieve their objectives. We believe that CPD for all educators is an imperative so that teachers and managers have the skills and resources to provide learners with an education that allows them to progress, achieve and enjoy learning. However, the training must be affordable and have a measurable impact on school and individual performance. Learning coaching skills as part of the training process does allow those who attend to learn how to share their learning and reflect on the impact their new skills will have on their own performance, their department, the school and the learners.
