Professional Learning


The Kite TSA is committed to ensuring that professional learning is an enjoyable and inspiring activity for all its members and recognises that while professional learning takes many forms it is optimised where teachers are open-minded, reflective, take responsibility for their own development and view their professional learning journey as an ongoing process throughout their teaching career.

The Kite TSA works in partnership with the other Teaching School Alliances and the Local Authority to offer a broad range of professional learning opportunities. We have worked collaboratively to build a complete view of the CPD offer for teachers in Cambridgeshire which can now be found on the Teach in Cambs website.  Our collaboration is represented by this cog logo.

In addition to this website The Kite TSA communicates its professional learning offer which includes informal skills shares, training courses and conferences through a half-termly newsletter (click here to subscribe)

Whilst The Kite will occasionally offer one-off courses we believe that creating positive relationships and forming professional learning communities with other practitioners over an extended period of time not only deepens the learning but has improved sustained positive impact in the classrooms. All our courses are designed to be inspiring, informative, collegiate, joyful and fun!
