What We Offer
Affinity TSA offers an extensive programme each term of half-day and one-day courses open to all member schools.
Our courses are delivered by experienced Headteachers, outstanding specialist leaders in member schools and consultants. We also offer courses in partnership with regional and national organisations with whom we have forged strategic partnerships, such as The Mighty Creatives and the Arts Council for arts initiatives, the British Council for MFL and the University of Leicester for research and innovation.
We also offer a further range of CPD services via NETS Training, a school-driven CPD programme delivered in partnership with Affinity and Cotgrave Candleby Lane Teaching School in Nottingham.
We also provide longer-term programmes to develop teaching and learning, nurture talent and develop leadership.
2014/15 will be the final year we offer the Schools Direct PGCE, and in 2015/16 we're very pleased to launch our new SCITT - applications welcome from November 2014.
A termly plan and booking information is sent directly to all member schools at the beginning of each term and is available here on the website.
