Our annual membership for schools makes providing CPD training for teachers, teaching assistants, school leaders and governors easier than ever.

The Trust currently has over 50 member schools and this is increasing year on year. With the current budgets cuts imposed by central government it’s becoming increasingly important for schools to find ways to save money without losing out on quality. CPD is important in any profession – whether you’re an experienced in teaching, administration or governance, it ensures that you stay competent in your role and it allows you to keep up with new practices and legislation changes.

Membership of BEST Trust can save you time and money by buying in to an all-inclusive package which allows your staff access to all our events*. The Trust maybe new but our antecedent BPLC has been with you since 2011, and so we have created systems and programmes with your help and advice. Our new database system will allow School Staff access to all their CPD records and CPD Coordinators will have access to the full schools CPD logs throughout the year, this could come in handy for your management reports or when inspections arise.

Our membership rates for 2018/19 are based on pupil numbers and we are halving the cost for previous members to a fraction of the 2017/8 prices. Below you will find some the courses that we ran last year and the obvious benefits to becoming a member. If you have any questions or would like to check how much membership would cost for your school then please contact us by phone, email or by filling out the contact form below and we will respond as soon as possible.

*Please note a select few courses incur additional costs but are heavily subsidised.
