Drawing on more than 15 years of experience, in training teachers and school leaders, throughout Essex and at national conferences, this training offer provides high quality, evidence-based CPD with a focus on practice-based outcomes for the educational practitioner.  As an active researcher, in leading-edge topics within SEMH and SEND, Catherine has created training based on highly relevant material shaped into practical, lively and engaging workshops.


All the training for schools (primary and secondary) is designed to meet the Standard for Teachers’ Professional Development . Working from your starting point we can  design bespoke training  based on your school’s CPD requirements and provide tools to measure impact on practice and staff and pupils’ well-being.
