We are pleased to present our CPD Offer for 2021-2022, a dynamic range of courses for school leaders, teachers and support staff.
South West Institute for Teaching (SWIFT) - formerly known as Teaching Schools South West (TSSW) - is a partnership of legacy Teaching School Alliances and new Teaching School Hubs, as well as schools, Trusts, Research School, ITT Providers and DfE CPD Providers, like Maths Hubs. As a collective, we are committed to providing schools with a wide range of high quality CPD at highly affordable rates.
The majority of courses offered here can be accessed either through the SWIFT Membership package, which entitles schools to no charge / discounted rates. Over 60% of pupils in Devon, Plymouth and Torbay attend a school that is a SWIFT Member! Alternatively, schools can access all the programmes on a pay-as-you-go basis. Member and non-member rates are clearly displayed with each course.
Some courses are delivered through our Teaching School Hub programmes: the Early Career Framework and NPQs, for example. These programmes are not subject to Membership discounts. All schools in Devon, Plymouth and Torbay are entitled to access these at the same competitive rates.
Take some time to scroll through the booklet, and navigate using the index and course booking links.

In addition to our CPD Offer, we run a series of Professional Communities (formerly known as networks), Conferences and other services, details of which you can find here
