The Diocesan Schools’ Service understands that to ensure our academies and schools provide the best possible Catholic education we must have professional, highly trained and motivated teams working in and supporting them.

The Diocesan Schools’ Continuing Development Programme details the training available for classroom practitioners, aspiring school leaders at all levels, members of schools’ Senior Leadership Teams, Trustees and Governors.

The Diocesan Schools’ Continuing Professional Development Programme aims to provide training and development for all staff, trustees and governors of diocesan schools to support them in their ambition to provide good and outstanding Catholic education.

We are constantly reviewing and seeking to improve the training and development opportunities we provide to schools and I hope you find the courses on offer will help you in delivering your important contribution to Catholic education in the Diocese.
