Learning Cultures design and deliver high quality, well researched continuing professional development (CPD) for leaders, managers, teachers and support staff. We are a leading provider of coaching training for the education profession in the United Kingdom and the Learning Cultures' coaching model is integral within every one of our training events. Click here to see a complete list of our events. CPD for all staff has to make a difference to learning, individual performance and contribute to the school's vision. We design our events to ensure that those who attend take back a suite of skills and resources to cascade their learning to others. In this way the recipient of the training is able to contribute to creating a measurable impact on building a sustainable whole school strategy for continuous improvement.
The training and consultancy programmes written by our expert team at Learning Cultures are designed to support schools manage the current and ever changing education policy landscape, curriculum re-design and the need for all staff and managers in school to have the expertise and the evidence that OFSTED ISI or ESTYN are looking for. We are building a picture of the latest thinking on assessment without levels and have created a powerpoint presentation to capture the main points of a report highlighting the current research that is being undertaken by the Training Schools Alliance. Click on our assessment page to view our presentation and to find out more about the current changes.
The Learning Cultures philosophy aligns closely with the recent legislation that enshrines performance management systems into law and requires all schools to link appraisal to the school development or improvement plan and to the ongoing need for all staff to have the relevant Continuing Professional Development (CPD) that allows them to achieve their objectives. We believe that CPD for all educators is an imperative so that teachers and managers have the skills and resources to provide learners with an education that allows them to progress, achieve and enjoy learning. We have developed our own model for change and excellence, SCOPE will help you to focus on ensuring the Strategy is Communicated effectively, Objectives for every individual are aligned to the vision and goals within the strategic plan. Individuals can put into Practice the objectives they have set for themselves and there are opportunities to Evaluate and reflect on successes and those areas of strategy still to be implemented.

Coaching Towards Outstanding Teaching and Learning
How to approach mastery and planning a lesson that allows children to explore, share and master were the most valuable parts of the training for me. Numeracy Coordinator from a Primary School in Lambeth, London – June 2016.
Mastering Numeracy Specifics
Key note speakers were inspiring and informative. I’m feeling challenged and supported with various strategies and ideas. Assistant Headteacher from a Secondary School in Luton – March 2016
The Power of coaching – Annual Conference 2016
It’s not just about electing a class rep….completing a needs analysis and scrutinising some models have given me a succinct plan of how the learner voice can be embedded in my college to support learner development. - Student Union President from a college in Manchester – June 2016
Developing the Learner Voice in a Post 16 setting
Great, informative and fun! The resources and ideas were practical to take back to school and being coached through an action plan gave me an opportunity to reflect. Primary School Teacher in Dudley – July 2016
Made me realise where I am confusing mentoring and coaching. Being put in the role of a coachee and knowing how others would feel were really valuable part of the training. Improvement Director at an Academy Trust in Harrow, London – July 2016
Coaching for TAs and Support Staff
I now have so many ideas about how to move transition forward – thank you! Excellent resources, relevant information with practical ideas. So many things I want to do now. A really good course. Key Stage 3 Leader – Isle of Man – January 2016
Crossing The Bridge
"I have been so inspired by what I have learnt today, different, relevant and so exciting" "The opportunity to practise my coaching skills has really helped to consolidate my thoughts, I know what I need to to next" "The most exciting opportunity within clear boundaries to talk about teaching and learning and share some innovation from colleagues"
Comments from a coaching INSET this January
Nice to speak with other professionals and be given resources such as coaching questions, lesson observation pro formas and the GROW model that I can adapt for INSET. Head of Year from a Middle School in Redditch - June 2016
Art of Lesson Observation
I really enjoyed the informality of this course; it allowed for self-reflection and the ability to be open and honest. I will be implementing the practical tip of a cover lesson pro forma and feedback sheet, so cover lesson quality can be monitored. Cover Supervisor from a Secondary School in Swansea, Wales.
Coaching Skills for Cover Supervisors
