PBM Training and Consultancy announce CPD support for schools.

For 2 weeks, schools can make their CPD budget go much further with up to 35% off the costs of selected courses and workshops.

To celebrate the launch of the new company website, PBM Training and consultancy is delighted to announce amazing advance booking discounts for member-schools.

The discounts are applicable to CPD courses and workshops that take place at Heath House in Staffordshire during the Autumn term 2014. Using the advance booking discount, schools can save up to 35% off the cost of some of the courses scheduled for the Autumn Term. The discount ends promptly at midday on Monday 16th June 2014.


So why did we decide to celebrate the launch of our new company website with course discounts?

There are a couple of underlying reasons behind the discounts.

As a company, we passionately believe that schools should be able to access outstanding quality training at an affordable price. We already consciously ensure that our training courses are competitively priced. For example the average cost of attending a one-day PBM course is approximately £185+VAT per person before any membership discounts. This is substantially less than many other training providers, some of whom charge in the region of £295+VAT per person for a one-day course

We wanted member-schools to be able to share in the development in a meaningful way. With a number of schools that we support, facing significant cuts to their budget, we felt that it would be appropriate to do something that would help them to continue to bring about improvement despite the budget constraints.


Which courses are included in the discounts?

As a company, we provide a diverse range of courses and workshops. We specialise in supporting schools with all aspects of school self-evaluation, monitoring, inspection preparation and most aspects of school improvement. The discounts are focused on courses that are linked to aspects of school self-evaluation and monitoring. For example lesson observation training, inspection and evaluation skills for headteachers and senior leaders, work sampling and data handling.

So how can your school take advantage of these discounts?

Schools that are existing members will automatically have the appropriate discount applied to any bookings that they make. Schools that are not yet members are welcome to join. It is completely free to become a member and schools can join even if they only wish to book one place on one course.
