New residential CPD programme - available now!

27 October 2021

Following the success of our Summer pathway courses, we are delighted to be launching a year-round residential CPD programme, starting this November.

What are the benefits of residential CPD?

Residential CPD offers high-impact, intensive training over two or three consecutive days within a classroom environment. Taking a residential course is the ideal opportunity to reflect and challenge yourself, network with like-minded colleagues, create action plans and access resources to take back to the classroom.

What does the course include?

Attendees will receive overnight accommodation each night of the training course (apart from the final day) as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner. They can also opt to book an extra night the day before or after the course starts at an additional cost.

Bursaries are also available for teachers from state-funded schools and colleges and can be used to fund travel, supply cover, teaching equipment or further local CPD.

Upcoming residential courses

Taking place at the National STEM Learning Centre, you or your colleagues can participate in CPD while taking advantage of the state-of-the-art facilities.

Staycation in York?

PLUS, if participants fancy an early gift this year, they can opt to extend their stay and spend the weekend in York, taking advantage of the hugely popular York Christmas market - St Nicholas Fair! Bed and breakfast will be available at the Centre’s on-site accommodation at the discounted rate of £38+VAT per night for Friday 26, Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 November; participants can email the Centre at to book, providing their course booking information and confirming the night(s) they would like to stay.
