During the COVID 19 pandemic the NEU has been running CPD for members online in the format of webinars, online courses and webinar programmes. This will continue into the new academic year although some of the longer courses and programmes may take a blended learning approach with opportunities to meet with peers on a face-to-face basis. Where this is the case, details will be highlighted in the course descriptions.

Our programme offers a wide range of CPD designed to meet your needs in relation to Behaviour Management, SEND issues, Mental Health and Wellbeing, Teaching and Learning and cultivating Creativity in your classroom.  In addition, we offer specific leadership CPD to those who are aspiring to lead, new in a leadership role or an established Head Teacher or Principal. Early Career Teachers can also access CPD to support them at every stage as they embark on their teaching journey.

The National CPD programme is a valuable benefit for NEU members. It is continually adapted and reviewed to meet your learning needs and the needs of your students.  To take advantage of this and one of the many other benefits of NEU membership then join here.
