Beacon East broker and organise a wide range of exciting CPD (Continuous Professional Development) opportunities for teachers, careers advisers and other education professionals. This professional development largely focuses on events or individual placements with business & industry. These activities support a range of needs, from curriculum development to improving careers provision.
This form of CPD has been a highly successful aspect of Beacon East work over the last 10 years. In many cases a teacher visit has helped plan and form a following student experience. Resources received at a teacher CPD event will often be used with students in the classroom. Students may then visit the employer to experience the sector first hand. This three-tiered approach is an excellent way to form a long term and meaningful relationship with a local employer.
