Welcome to the TSC SW CPD and Research Page 


My name is Dr Jim Rogers and I am the TSC SW CPD and Research Lead. My goal is to develop expertise across the SW educational system in the design and delivery of effective, evidence-informed professional learning programmes, linked to the regional educational priorities. This comes from both my own experience and, more importantly, from the high level of expertise from our regional and national partners. 

Please look out for our TSC SW Twitter Feed. We will also be running events for CPD / T&L and TS Leads over the coming months.
