Meeting the Needs Programmes

The "Meeting the Needs" CPD provision is a series of school led sessions will take place across the course of the year. They will be coordinated by the Pathfinder Teaching School Alliance but will be led and delivered by local schools and education professionals.

The York secondary schools have offered to lead on a number of titles which will appear as the year progresses.

These sessions will be coordinated by our Secondary CPD coordinator Chris Gladstone.  If you would like to discuss this provision further or would like to contribute, please e-mail Chris to arrange a meeting: cgladstone@archbishopholgates.org

The ultimate aim for this section of the provision is that all schools in the City contribute to a school led CPD Programme.
