The Teaching School Council are pleased to be working with the NGA to provide the funded training to all schools across the region. There are several opportunities to take part in this training across Cornwall, Plymouth Devon & Torbay. The training has been scheduled so that if you are unable to train at you nearest cohort you are able to attend a session elsewhere. Teaching schools across the SW region have agreed to offer facilities at little or no charge to support the running of smaller cohorts than would usually be possible.
