New Perspectives on ... courses

New Perspectives ... offers two main types of course designed for headteachers, teachers, those training to teach and, often, other staff or governors in primary and nursery schools.

The courses are based on research and experience, with both theoretical and practical elements. Courses are set up, usually in schools, in response to requests, rather than organised on pre-set dates. If you wish to discuss holding one of these courses in this school and how these can be of most use to you, then please contact
