Woodard’s programme of professional support for staff and students

Woodard exists to support its schools through facilitating the sharing of the great practice that exists in many of our schools. Today over fifty schools belong to our family, many of them judged to be outstanding by OfSTED/ISI and all with examples of good practice.

To help develop collaboration between the schools Woodard has established an ambitious programme of training hubs. Each training hub is based in one of our outstanding schools and has been given financial support by Woodard to spread their expertise to other schools in the family, at no financial cost to our schools except for travel expenses.

Each hub school will share expertise through:

  • Conferences – for staff and students
  • Courses – both face to face and on-line
  • On-line resource portals

Altogether Woodard plans to support eight training hubs. Each training hub has been given a three year contract. Three of these will be up and running by September 2015.
