Continued Professional Development-Training

You are here: Home > Candidate Info > CPD


Affinity Education have partnered with inspirational experienced trainers in order to provide their Supply Teachers with the opportunity of receiving professional development. 

As a Supply Teacher the opportunity of training is limited therefore many Supply Teachers do not engage in training. In order to raise and maintain standards of Supply Teachers working with Affinity Education and to offer the schools that we place our teachers within the highest quality teaching staff possible, we have developed a valuable, successful training programme. 

At the end of the course, each delegate is provided with a professional certificate of attendance. 

Please see below some comments from Supply Teachers who have attended our training courses:-
