CPD & Training

The Consortium Trust acknowledges that we are all life long learners, our aim is to ensure that all our staff, governors and Trustees have access to quality and cost effective training.  We are forging relationships with external providers, including the National Governors Association (NGA) and Institute of Leadership and Management (iLM) to provide adult training and support across our Trust, covering education, premises, HR, safeguarding and attendance, to name a few.
As well as using external providers, our staff also offer a range of continued professional development opportunities for our member schools and external schools through our traded services.  From the 1st May 2017 CMAT has become a member of the CPD Certification Service, our training offer will be externally validated and many courses and seminars will CPD certified (look out for the CPD Accredited logo).
