Welcome to Learning Cultures
Continuing Professional Development for Teachers
Learning Cultures design and deliver high quality, well researched continuing professional development (CPD) for leaders, managers, teachers and support staff. We are a leading provider of coaching training for the education profession in the United Kingdom and the Learning Cultures' coaching model is integral within every one of our training events. Click here to see a complete list of our events. CPD for all staff has to make a difference to learning, individual performance and contribute to the school's vision. We design our events to ensure that those who attend take back a suite of skills and resources to cascade their learning to others. In this way the recipient of the training is able to contribute to creating a measurable impact on building a sustainable whole school strategy for continuous 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 landscape, curriculum re-design and the need for all staff and managers in school to have the expertise and the evidence that OFSTED ISI or ESTYN are looking for. We are building a picture of the latest thinking on assessment without levels and have created a powerpoint presentation to capture the main points of a report highlighting the current research that is being undertaken by the Training Schools Alliance. Click on our assessment page to view our presentation and to find out more about the current changes.
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.

"Attended a superb course lead by Jayne today. Walked away with a wealth of new knowledge, enough materials for half a dozen INSET sessions at my own school ... and a huge motivation to take coaching - at a different and advanced level - into my own school. What she doesn't know about teaching, learning, coaching, NQT support, etc ... isn't worth knowing! " From a delegate attending our Coaching Towards Outstanding Teaching and Learning in Manchester
Coaching Towards Outstanding Teaching and Learning
"I have been so inspired by what I have learnt today, different, relevant and so exciting" "The opportunity to practise my coaching skills has really helped to consolidate my thoughts, I know what I need to to next" "The most exciting opportunity within clear boundaries to talk about teaching and learning and share some innovation from colleagues"
