The Portal aims...

  • To Create a Live Channel for Regional Collaboration

     To create a live channel of communication that can be shared with colleagues in developing policy and national guidance.

    We understand that it has been a very challenging time for all colleagues working in education and we trust that you and your communities are keeping well, and that you continue to stay safe in the coming weeks.
  • To Find Solutions and Share Resources

    Find solutions for the challenges identified and share resources and guidance across networks to support the delivery of remote learning and CPD during closure if needed, whilst being sensitive to the danger of overloading colleagues.

    For educators managing learning due to school closure, we have developed a remote learning page which aims to aggregate and share resources, experiences and guidance on how to manage remote learning and working. 

  • To Provide Aligned System Leader Support and CPD

    To provide a single point of access for schools to find aligned CPD and System Leader Support.

    Access an extensive selection of school-led training and Continuing Professional Pevelopment from over 80 Providers across the South West of England Here

    From the Portal's System Leader Support Directory you can access a range of system leaders across the South West of England. Make links and connections to regional expertise.

     

Find School CPD , System Leaders , School Improvement News , Resources and Updates for Schools in SW England.  


At CPDPortal-SW we're passionate about the self-improving, school-led system. Through the Portal we've created the regional architecture to provide a single collaboration platform and a school improvement platform for all schools across the South West of England, supporting a school-led approach to CPD and wider school improvement. The Portal was created with the Teaching Schools Council to support the needs of Teaching Schools throughout SW England. Since then it has evolved into a platform for all organisations in the education sector. 

Use the Portal to find school CPD and training courses for teachers, teaching assistants, and wider support staff in Devon, Dorset, Somerset, North Somerset, Cornwall, South Gloucestershire, Plymouth, Torbay, Wiltshire, throughout SW England and beyond. Use the Portal to find System Leaders (NLE, SLE, Governance, Hub etc) throughout SW England. Connect to critical school improvement news, resources and updates. 

The Portal is a single regional collaboration platform underpinning school improvement across South West England, and the principal place for school teachers, support staff and leaders to find school CPD and system leader support. It brings together everything schools and the wider education sector need to create, deliver and promote CPD programmes in a Teaching School, Teaching School Alliance, Teaching School Hub, Federation, Diocese, Local Authority LA, MAT
 or any educational organisation in SW England.  

We continue to work in partnership with many organisations (DfE, RSC, LAs, Teaching School Council SW, Teaching School Hubs, Teaching School Alliances, the Education Endowment Fund, Whole School SEND etc) to deliver a live platform for collaboration and communication across the education sector.
