      CPD, Training & Resources

      Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

      We believe in positively affecting the lives of pupils throughout schools in London. To do this we want to provide our staff with up-to-date training to assist with the most important job of all, being an educator in schools. One of the biggest issues we hear from people working through agencies in schools is a perceived lack of training and support. We believe that just because you aren’t permanently employed doesn’t mean that you should miss out on career development or access to training.

      We have partnered up with the CIPD Certification Service to provide accredited courses that can help you develop your career and document your activities. So, what is CPD? CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development and is the term used to describe the learning activities professionals engage in to develop and enhance their abilities. It enables learning to become conscious and proactive, rather than passive and reactive.

      Engaging with Vision Teaching’s CPD ensures that both your academic and practical learning are kept current, allowing you to continually ‘up-skill’ or ‘re-skill’, regardless of your occupation, age or level of education.

      Our CPD programme has a range of training for support staff as well as teachers. Our overall aim is to provide training and learning that increases both your confidence and capability, as well as complement your career aspirations.

      We provide free CPD for all our educators. Our head of CPD is a qualified teacher with 8 years-experience in schools and has been previously been a curriculum lead and an education consultant & a tutor trainer to ensure a positive impact on progress and attainment in numeracy and literacy and is very experienced with SEND. He is on hand to help train and support all educators.  We are also the only agency to provide our candidates with free Team Teach training.

      We have a new calendar of free CPD training events and workshops available to Vision Teaching educators, along with a bank of resources to help you in the classroom.

      We provide free of charge CPD courses! So whether you are looking to become Team Teach trained, develop your behaviour management skills, become a teacher or learn new skills – we are always looking for individuals that want to make a difference.

      We want to reward the hard work, passion and dedication you show on a daily basis to the pupils you work with and whose lives you want to improve. That’s why in addition to free CPD and training, we also arrange regular social events and provide a support network to meet other individuals in education.

      Our useful and relevant resources to help support you in the classroom include:

      Successful Supply Teaching

      Supply work can be a great thing to do if you’re getting back into education, you’re between teaching jobs, or you just want that bit of freedom with your working hours. We provide our top tips to give you a successful day of supply teaching!

      Behaviour Management

      This booklet has been written by former teachers, for current teachers. We wanted to provide you with a useful resource that wasn’t made available to us when we were in our heyday. Something you can turn to before you begin your journey, or just a handy reference in times of doubt.

      Interview Survival Guide

      We will work hard to get to know you, the types of the school you want to work in and your ideal role. As a result, we hope to provide you with interviews with a school that wants to get to know more about you. Good preparation is the key!

      We regularly hold training events, so if you want to get involved in our CPD programme or if you are interested in our CPD courses, or you would like to suggest a course for us to run please contact Marianne on 0207 430 7120, or email community@visionteaching.co.uk

      I joined Vision Teaching because I wanted a more flexible work schedule and decided to do supply teaching. I met the Team at their lovely Liverpool Street Offices and was made to feel very welcome by Alan and Carly. They gave me all the information I needed, reassured me and made me feel at ease. Everyone has been most kind and helpful on the phone. Carly and Alan are very supportive. I am excited about starting my first Supply Teaching with them this week.
