INSET days to inspire and develop your team - with a twist!

As pupils and teachers will now be returning to schools in September, we are delighted to be resuming delivering our inspiring INSET days in-school. Our dynamic education consultants will bring your school's INSET days to life, all whilst adhering to government guidelines to ensure the safety of your staff and pupils.

All of our consultants undergo a rigorous selection and ongoing training process, helping us achieve consistently outstanding feedback with more than 95% of attendees describe their experience as "excellent".

INSET days... with a twist!

We recognise that this return to school in the 'new normal' brings many new challenges for pupils and teachers, and so here at TT Education we want to do all we can to support schools during this new transition.

Something we have put into place during the pandemic and which has worked really well for schools is providing a recording of the INSET on demand for your staff to access flexibly at a time of their choice. Following this, we would then schedule a face-to-face or remote afternoon or twilight session with a consultant where staff can ask questions or discuss the training content in more depth - we currently have a number of schools using this approach and they are finding it extremely valuable.

Our choice of courses spans more than 30 topics including English, maths, history, geography, SMSC, curriculum development, middle leadership or behaviour management (and many more). Teachers and leaders love the experiential and interactive nature of our training, describing our training sessions as “practical”, “fun” and “extremely engaging”, with “ideas I can implement tomorrow”.

However, if the above option doesn't quite suit you, our award-winning trainers can still visit your school and deliver your INSET day in person. Alternatively, we can provide it online, live, allowing the same bespoke training on a subject of your choice, only delivered via livestream.

There are a number of benefits to accessing our training via livestream:

  • Your staff can each log in individually to the session, from home or wherever they are.
  • The training is live-streamed, meaning each teacher can pause and rewind sections.
  • As with our face-to-face INSETs, we'll tailor the content to meet your school's needs.
  • Staff can ask questions of the trainer who will respond in real-time.
  • Where appropriate, a recording of the INSET can be made available for staff to watch after the event on-demand.

You can choose from our list of courses from our website, or we can tailor a bespoke session just for your school. The length of the training can range from a full 6-hour day, to a focussed 2-hour session on a particular aspect of learning, teaching or leadership.

"Your online training was excellent, thank you. I was extremely impressed by the efforts made to ensure the course suited our particular needs and it did - covering all areas that needed covering and provided some excellent ideas and initiatives for us to evaluate." - Louise Shaw, Deputy Head, Thornton College
