Professional Development

One of the benefits of working as a federation is the wide range of professional development opportunities that we can create to serve the needs of as wide a range of staff as possible. All of our schools and academies have their own training plans appropriate to the needs of their own circumstances, but the CLF Institute has the capacity to take this further.
