CPD

During the time of school closures I have decided to offer some free CPD to teachers and beginning teachers. All you have to do is email me at drjamesdholt@gmail.com to register interest for the session you would like to attend. More dates and topics will be added over time. Just a reminder in your email to indicate the course and time you would like.

All sessions will be between 60 and 90 minutes. They will take place on Zoom. Please note that the sessions may be recorded that as many teachers as possible can benefit from the offer.
