What we do

"The best CPD that I've ever had. Completely addressed the issues we are facing as a school and gave me practical ideas which I can take back and implement straight away. Also renewed my passion for the work I do. Thank you." Deputy Head

ASCL Professional Development (ASCL PD) is a leading provider of CPD and leadership development across the UK.

We design, develop and organise a range of online and in-person events, including conferences, courses, programmes and tailor-made services that are responsive to both government initiatives and professional needs identified by colleagues in schools, colleges and trusts.

Our events are designed for all colleagues - both members and non-members - who aspire to or are in management and leadership positions in schools, colleges and trusts.
All our events feature expert input from highly respected educational consultants and leading practitioners, as well as our own team of experienced specialists.

Our friendly staff always ensure delegates have everything they need before, during and after attending our events, including access to high-quality resources to take back to colleagues at your schools, colleges and trusts.
