TRAINING

Stepping Stones are passionate about inclusive education for all children, raising standards for all learners. Our courses are designed and delivered by specialist teachers. CPD will be tailored to the specific needs of your school and staff, following discussion with your SLT.

During 2019-20 (pre-Covid) training was delivered to 184 staff from 36 schools across the 3 Districts. Feedback from the training was 100% ‘Excellent’ or ‘Very Good’. Following up the training staff responded to a survey with 100% reporting a positive impact on the behaviour of the child and 100% reporting the child was accessing learning in a more positive way.
