CPD and Training


Fairfields TSA offers a comprehensive programme within our annual prospectus of training and development for our alliance schools.

Our courses are delivered by experienced practitioners across our alliance schools, associates and external consultants. We also offer courses and conferences in partnership with regional and national organisations with whom we have forged strategic partnerships.

In conjunction with other teaching schools across Northamptonshire, we also provide programmes related to career progression and leadership development.

 Regular course information updates are sent out in the form of flyers, newsletters and via social media.
