Professional Development

Our Continual Professional Development is designed to be consistent with the values of the Church of England’s Vision for Education. We aim for high quality and excellent value for money. Courses and events are open to all those involved in our diocesan family of church schools and academies. Some courses may also be appropriate for community schools and academies and representatives are welcome to attend. The Covid situation means that we will continue to review some of the courses and how best to deliver them for optimum efficiency and safety for delegates.

Booking a place is essential. This is to ensure that you receive joining instructions and that events are catered for correctly. Online booking will be available or you can email alison.watson@coventrydbe.org or call 01788 422800.

Coventry Peace Walk is coming up next month. It takes in 5 places of worship, so great for teacher RE subject knowledge and to support the planning of RE visits, as well as a thoroughly lovely event.

Thanks to all the fabulous pupils from our schools who joined us for an afternoon of planning collective worship for advent & Christmas. We can’t wait to see your planning sheets & hear all about how it goes! Very exciting! #collectiveworship #advent

Jen has enjoyed leading training on Understanding Christianity at All Saints CE Academy, Bedworth today. Look at these playdough concepts. Possibly the cutest representation of salvation ever!
