Developing Together Social Work  Teaching Partnership

CPD Training Opportunities

The Teaching Partnership aspires to provide regional progression and development opportunities to equip practitioners with the skills and ability to progress within the partnership.

Continued Professional Development (CPD) training opportunities are provided through your organisation’s Learning & Development programme, which will be enhanced by the ability to access CPD training across the Partnership via our ‘CPD Passport’ scheme. If you’ve ever found yourself not able to access training due to courses in your organisation being fully booked, or not being compatible with your diary, or you just want to experience a different learning environment with colleagues outside your organisation, then this scheme is for you.

How to access ‘CPD Passport’

Your organisation will advertise the courses being offered by Partners to the wider Partnership on a termly basis. The list of available courses will also be advertised on this page. If you are interested in a particular course, please contact your local workforce development team in the first instance. Once you have discussed with your local workforce development team, you can follow the host organisation’s instructions for booking (as found in the table below). 

You will receive a CPD certificate of attendance and this will contribute to your overall professional development hours.

Information on the training courses available for the Summer term can be found in the table below, or by downloading this document.
