About us: The importance of high quality teacher development

We know that teachers are committed to developing their career through building their knowledge and understanding of both their own practice and the educational landscape. 

 

We know that schools benefit from teachers who are regularly engaged with meaningful and thought-provoking development and professional learning. 

 

Schools that provide regular, high quality and relevant development and professional learning  retain staff more effectively than schools that do not.

 Teachers who have the opportunity to engage in development and professional learning perform better, maintain enthusiasm and motivation and are less likely to leave their school or, indeed, the profession.

We are aware that school budgets are tight and spending large sums of money for one-day stand alone courses, that have little or no impact on either the  individual or  the whole school community, is no longer feasible.

Our Vision

We aim to provide high quality research and evidence informed teacher development and professional learning for teachers at any stage of their career from early career teachers through to senior leaders. 

 

The opportunities we provide are easily accessible, with the aim of opening discussion and debate through creating international communities of teachers.  

Our Webinars

Bowden Education offer an online webinar every month of the academic year using Zoom as our learning platform.

The webinars are led by experts in their field and cover a wide range of contemporary and pertinent topics.

The webinars take place in the early evening (6-7pm) to ensure they are accessible and do not require remission time from your teaching.

We keep the cost of our webinars to a minimum at just £10 per person again making these accessible and affordable for individuals and schools alike.

Along with the webinar ticket everyone will receive an interactive infographic with additional relevant resources and a copy of the webinar chat.

If you cannot make the time and date, do not worry!  Each of our webinars are available as part of an infographic from our Bowden Education Shop.
