Check out Octavo's CPD programme for the Summer Term...

To round up the academic year we've got a great range of CPD training to offer for the final term including network meetings, Bitesize workshops and SIMs training from the IT team.

Don't forget about our Summer conferences...

Independent Learning with Alistair Smith

“The guru of acceleration” (Times Educational Supplement)

Following the very positive feedback from the CHTA conference, Octavo have invited Alistair Smith to return to work with Croydon schools in the Summer Term. We will be hosting two conferences, suitable for Headteachers/Principals and Senior Leadership teams, and through these conferences Alistair will bring an understanding of the ‘science’ of learning to the ‘art’ of teaching.

19th April for Primary Schools, 4th May for Secondary schools

Hilton Hotel Croydon, 9am – 3:30pm
