One of the stated aims of Birmingham Special Schools’ Co-operative Trust is to provide ‘performance and development opportunities for Trust members and partners which secure continued and sustained excellent practice and outcomes for all Trust schools’.

To this end, our CPD Lead has arranged a number of CPD opportunities for staff in the Trust schools to aid professional development and share good practice. These include: Maths and English Working Groups; whole Trust Teaching Assistant training days, and a leadership programme tailored to special schools, which is due to commence in September 2021. Further details of this will be posted shortly.
