Beechwood TSA Training Packages
Select from set development programmes or opt for bespoke packages to suit your school’s needs.
Our training is aimed to support teachers, leaders and school managers at all stages of their career progression. In addition to the set development packages below, we can work with schools to design bespoke development and intervention packages that suit specific requirements.
About our training
We want our training to be effective: to provide ongoing development and support tailored to each participant’s needs and based on sustained relationships with experienced professionals.
Most programmes extend over five or six sessions with built-in opportunities to trial, refine and assess the impact of new ideas and suggestions. Many programmes also involve bespoke coaching sessions to allow participants to reflect on their progress and problem-solve potential barriers.
Training is usually provided by our own team of SLE’s or partner organisations working within the region. They know and understand the issues and conditions faced by schools within our Alliance and, through regular contact, are able to develop the essential relationships that make the difference between a one-off training event and genuinely effective professional support.
Much of our training also involves a research element. Participants are encouraged to trial new approaches or explore specific issues relevant to their own practice and to common issues shared across the Alliance.
We aim to respond to the changing needs of our partner schools. Programmes change from year to year and will often include elective elements to provide choice and flexibility and ensure the training meets the individual needs of all participants.
How our training is organised
Our training aims to support teachers, leaders and school managers at all stages of their career progression. For that reason, we have organised our training into different ‘Packages’, each covering a different area of support: Leadership, Teaching, Learning Support, English, Maths, Computing and Digital Literacy, and Moderation Twilights. Each of these ‘Packages’ includes a range of training programmes pitched at different levels of experience and expertise.
Are your staff all at different places with their training needs?
If your staff have quite different needs and interests then you can buy as many different programmes as you like, each priced individually.
