Autumn 2020 CPD Course:


‘It’s the Stage not the Age that Counts’
Viewing behaviour through a developmental lens

Welcome to the hidden web page of the autumn 2020 CPD Course. The aim is to provide all the necessary slideshows, handouts and resources to enable delegates to deliver, share or cascade the information to colleagues back in school; indeed, a number of delegates have successfully done this with our Forum materials. Furthermore, it makes accessing resources and web links much easier, with everything stored in one place. Our copyright terms are that attending delegates are free to use the materials within their own school only. We hope you find this helpful!
