As well as attending regular staff training during my recent work at Hot House Music and on-going work at Penyrheol Comprehensive with the council while receiving regular audits and reviews, I undertake my own Continuing Professional Development (CPD).  The aim of my CPD is to acquire tools to be a better rounded teacher in all facets of teaching, to add to my existing music expertise, to give greater learning experiences to my students.

I regularly undertake courses to aid with my understanding of students and to support my individual, group and classroom teaching.  All the courses undertaken are verifiable and accredited by the CPD Accreditation Service.  Below is a list of some the courses undertaken (each links to the certification):

I undertake regular Child Protection training and other courses, as part of my employments.  You may also note that I have lots of experience with students with SEN(D), which makes me uniquely qualified when setting differentiated tasks for pupils.  From September, 2021, I am starting a PGCEi in Group Tuition, which will further my knowledge and skills and proves my commitment to my personal development!
