A Few Changes To Our 2020-2021 CPD Training  

Working to deliver effective and engaging CPD training in these very different times certainly presents challenges for us all. It means we must try to find ways to work within ‘the new normal’.

Here at Sigma, we have implemented a few changes to respond to the situation, therefore all our Sigma colleagues are now working from home and will continue to do so for the time being.  Should you wish to contact us, please click here

We have carefully considered how we can proceed with our training for the new academic year whilst ensuring your safety and wellbeing.

It is for this reason we have decided to move our 2020-2021 courses (that can be moved), including those postponed from 2019-2020 to an online platform.

Online Training

From September 2020 we will be using webinars to deliver our CPD courses, that can be moved, rather than face to face training. This will still allow you to feel part of group learning and will still be led by our highly experienced facilitators. There will be opportunities to ask questions and participate as you would in a normal training session.  Our booking process will still remain the same and will be explained in more detail below.

We look forward to meeting you online and will of course keep you updated throughout the autumn term regarding when we are able to offer CPD training face to face once again.

Prices and Sigma Subscription Bundles

Each webinar costs £25 per person for a single webinar, or £125 per person for a six session webinar. All our prices are listed on the course details in this booklet;  those offered by an external provider may vary in cost.

We also offer Sigma subscription bundles, available to all schools, which will give you access to an essential package of key training webinars throughout 2020-2021, whilst saving you money.  See the table below.

There are three bundles to choose from;

Bundle One

An example for Bundle One would be :

2 staff members on Teaching and Learning,

2  staff members on  PACE+ Approach,

1 staff member on Middle Leadership for Teaching

1 staff member on Middle Leadership for Support Staff.

You can choose how many staff members you send on each of the above courses, within the number of places purchased.

Bundle Two

Bundle Three
