CPD and Training for teachers

What we offer

Learn new skills by taking part in our specialised sessions that use the stories of our palaces to enhance your teaching practice.

We offer a range of CPD opportunities at our sites, many are free of charge, with regular weekend and twilight sessions to support teachers in developing skills and confidence in teaching in an historic environment, leading visits, providing new angles and proven techniques to enrich teaching in the classroom.

Our CPD programme for the 2018-2019 academic year will be released shortly.
