‘The most valuable resources that all teachers have is each other. Without collaboration our growth is limited to own perspectives’ Robert John Meehan


Training costs

Most courses are free to BEST Trust members, unless stated otherwise. We offer a hybrid model of online and face to face courses. Delegates who register for a course but find themselves unable to attend will be given access to an online recording of the session as long as they notify BEST. Training records will show recordings accessed as valid sessions.

Once registered in our database, delegates can access their bookings and training records. BEST member schools can have access to the database to gain an overview of staff training.

Non-Trust  members should contact training@besttrust.uk to enquire about fees or check the training guide. Most online courses are from £50 per session.


The fundamental principle of the Trust is a group of schools working together to enhance staff professional learning in ways which add value over and above the impact of schools working separately. This involves managing the resources for professional learning, people and money, in ways which increase the capacity of individual schools.
