Foreword Dear Headteacher, I am delighted to be able to share with you our first Education Department CPD training courses booklet. I feel it is important for us to begin to provide information to Blackburn with Darwen schools in a more coordinated way and this booklet contains details of some of the training courses from various teams for the new academic year 2011-12. Continuing professional development is important for our school workforce, who continue to raise attainment in all schools and I hope that these courses may provide some innovative ways forward. As this is the first booklet bringing together a variety of expertise, I recognise that there may be some overlap of subject areas and teams and we are working to ensure this becomes more streamlined and efficient in the future. It is important that any CPD the Department provides meets the needs of your staff and school priorities so we would welcome feedback on a future needs analysis on which to develop an improved, comprehensive programme. Further CPD courses, including a variety of network meetings are also available on the learning platform where you will find further Information and the ability to apply on-line. I hope, centralising the application and confirmation process is an improvement and proves helpful to you and your staff. I am sure that categorising the courses further will also improve future editions and I would very much welcome your comments on the booklet and its use.

Harry Devonport Director of Education
