CPD and Training



Fairfields TSA offers a comprehensive programme across bi-annual prospectuses of training and development for all 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.

Our prospectus contains opportunities offered to our alliance schools only as part of the membership fee and opportunities that are a universal offer to all schools (usually charged but at a competitive rate).
