We offer a comprehensive selection of short training courses, the focus of which change to meet your ongoing needs. This reflects our commitment to helping you to develop your knowledge and skills across a range of areas.

Our experience is always positive. Courses are pitched well with up to date information using real life school experiences when relevant. When you invest in sending teachers out on courses you need to know what they receive is of good quality, especially in this current financial climate. With Grow's courses, this is guaranteed and the impact of their offering is strongly felt back at school.

Covering a wide selection of topics including Strategic Improvement, Curriculum, Safeguarding, CE Schools & SIAMs, SEND, HR and Data Protection, our short courses offer high quality professional development coupled with exceptional value for money.
