Continuing Professional Development for teachers

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) by Kew offers a selection of teacher, technician and support staff training programmes. Courses support the delivery of science and other curriculum subjects through exciting and engaging practical techniques.

Through our programme we aim to establish enthusiasm and confidence in the deliverer. All Kew courses are firmly based upon the National Curriculum, cross-curricular interests, Learning Out of the Classroom and PLTS initiatives.
