FREE Online CPD Opportunities

TSC SW are committed to supporting teachers and leaders, particularly at this challenging time. We have collated online materials and resources that can further colleagues’ thinking around teaching and practice and this will constantly be updated. We also continue to promote partners’ resources and guidance.

There may be an opportunity for some schools to offer CPLD during the summer term. While some of your existing plans may not be fulfilled there are a number of national and international providers offering free or discounted online training packages. We will monitor this and update this page as and when materials are released. We recommended Chartered College of Teaching membership and connecting with the Education Endowment Fund (EEF) too.


Here is a summary of some providers offering free/discounted/low-cost CPD for professionals, teachers and school leaders. Many courses are currently being offered at discount rates. Note: TSC SW cannot formally approve the providers or verify the quality of training, however each provider listed has both a reputation and scale that would indicate they are worth exploring.
