Teaching and Learning
Our teaching and learning courses focus on the practical skills and techniques for delivering outstanding teaching and engaging children with their learning.
Spanning three main areas – Classroom Practice, Securing Progress and Student Support – every course is delivered by experienced education consultants who understand the different demands of teaching depending on the needs, abilities and circumstances of every child.
Leadership and Subject Leaders
Developing the knowledge and skills of school leaders and managers transforms learning opportunities, enables sustainable improvement and shapes the future of the whole school.
Subject leader meetings offer information, presentations and discussion for specific subject areas providing a supportive network to share ideas and discuss best practice.
Our consultants tailor the series of meetings to the concerns and new opportunities available to subject leaders based on national developments and local priorities.
Finance and Administration
Supporting school business managers, bursars, administrative officers, and office staff, we’re at the leading edge of policy and best practice. Our consultants deliver training on all areas of school finance and administration, including strategic financial planning and using financial management software.
ICT training is key to meeting statutory Government requirements and to comply with LA obligations. Babcock 4S is a leading provider of ICT management training nationwide.

Our health & safety training will provide clear and concise guidance for implementing legislation, ensuring standards are continuously met, and recognising how to protect yourself and your establishment from liability and damage.
Our HR training is about quality induction and the ability to effectively manage and develop staff, which is integral to the success of the school and pupil outcomes as a whole.
