Great CPD inspires staff and makes sure that the best practice is maintained in our schools. Ignite aims to provide the best training opportunities for Alliance members and beyond.


Our training courses for teachers cover a wide range of curriculum areas so that teachers get the best training possible. We deliver courses from the vast experience of our school leaders and SLEs alongside working with high quality providers to make sure teachers get the support and inspiration they deserve.


Effective leadership is essential for a successful school and we have worked with providers to ensure leaders have up to date training to meet the demands of the system.


We are passionate about helping all children reach their potential no matter what barriers may be in the way. Along with Hinderton school, we have developed some exciting training opportunities to benefit both mainstream and special settings.

Support staff

The success of our schools relies on all staff who work within them. We believe in providing the highest quality training for our support staff to ensure our children get the very best.


Governors are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards.┬áThe role of the governing board is absolutely key to the effectiveness of a school. Time and time again Ofsted (the national inspection body for schools) has noted that the most effective schools demonstrate effective leadership and management – including by the governing board. We are passionate about offering high quality Governor training.
