Professional Development Programmes for teachers working in International Schools, London, July 2015
Venue: Regus Conference Centre, 33 Cavendish Square, London, W1G 0PW
Dates: 6th – 10th July 2015
Times for all courses (9:30 – 4:00 p.m.)

I have pleasure in attaching details of the ninth annual programme of CPD that Andy Phillips Associates are offering in London (Regus Conference Centre, 33 Cavendish Square, London, W1G 0PW) during July 2015 for teachers & leaders in International Schools.

As a previous participant at an APA training course, i would like to offer you / your school a 15% discount on any course fees for any applications and payments received before the 31st March 2015.

As well as the ever very popular courses on ‘leadership development’ and ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’, there will also be two courses, specifically developed to support the leadership / delivery of the 2014 national curriculum, as well as two-day course for teachers who wish to take learning in their classrooms to the next level using the techniques and strategies applied by TED and TEDx presenters which attract the attentions of millions worldwide. In addition, I am delighted that former headteacher and researcher Phil Cross will be delivering a course on ‘getting inside data’ as well as another course on the use and effectiveness of pupil voice.

I would be most grateful if you could distribute these amongst your colleagues. As we limit the number of participants on each of our courses, all places will be confirmed on a ‘first received’ basis.

In addition to offering the above range of courses, APA tutors are regularly asked by International Schools to run school-based training programmes (often bespoke versions / composites of the attached programmes) and schools are advised to contact me at: andy@apa-ec.co.uk as soon as is convenient.
Yours faithfully
