A new opportunity for Appropriate Bodies
for the upcoming academic year

July 2020

In partnership with NASBTT, Anspear is offering a growing range of digital CPD to help SCITTs, Appropriate Bodies and schools provide essential remote support for NQTs and other early career teachers. Purchasing licences to the mobile learning courses for your 2020-21 cohort brings access to the extensive CPD library, new training courses and the fully integrated digital credential system.

How users are enjoying Anspear's CPD Library

We're delighted to see so many positive comments from SCITTs, schools and individual users plus impressive statistics concerning usage of our courses.

Total number of active users: 4000+
Number of courses completed: 30,000+ (with a digital credential awarded for each course)

I've completed a number of these courses now and they are proving really helpful for my NQT studies. A big thank you to all of your authors. They have linked seamlessly with the EPS learning we've been asked to complete.

The Early Career Teacher Development Programme

In this programme, each teacher completes a simple online self-evaluation which analyses their professional development needs. Based on their responses, we provide an individually tailored report suggesting a programme of courses from our library. There is also a compiled report for the Appropriate Body providing a wider picture of perceived needs.

For more information about this programme, contact Jacquie Cox at j.cox@anspear.com.

The introduction of Anspear's mobile learning courses to staff training has had an immensely positive impact on a range of curriculum-related areas, pastoral support, wellbeing and leadership. The material is exceptionally easy to use, up to date, informative and relevant.
