The NEU believes that you should have access to CPD at every stage of your career, no matter what role, sector or phase you work in. Regularly updating knowledge and skills can help you remain competent, effective and innovative in your role. When your practice has these qualities, you are more likely to feel inspired, inspire others and teach effectively, thus enabling your learners to achieve their best. Our national CPD programme offers courses designed to meet your needs and help you develop your practice and cope with the demands of your job. Courses are offered at a highly subsidised rate for NEU members and are held at easily accessible locations and venues throughout the country.  All courses are delivered by experts in their field.

Accessing professional development is an important part of being an education professional and you should ask for support from your employer to attend the course, not just for the time spent away from the workplace but also in the form of travel costs, reimbursement and payment for your place. The NEU’s national CPD programme is heavily subsidised for members with an average discount of up to 70%.
