How Fig Tree International Ltd Can Support You

Our training and Continued Professional Development programmes are bespoke and personalised.

More generally, there are popular training sessions focused on effective leadership. Our custom workshops can cover curriculum-focused or school improvement focused initiatives. If there are particular subjects which need support, we will do what we can to facilitate using our specialist consultants.

In addition, we hold regular conferences on a variety of topics. These are profiled in our regular newsletter, on social media and via Eventbrite. If you would like us to tailor a conference to the needs of your staff/teams, this can be done too.

Team Training Sessions

  "As a result of their engagement in the organisation wide processes, teachers are actively involved in studying professional problems, making decisions about what to do, and committed to achieving results in implementing those decisions"  

(Owens 2004).  

Inevitably teams can function better when they have explored the function of teams and how they work.  Using the strength of teams can improve accountability and deliver the organisation's required aims and outcomes.  In our team training sessions, we inform and can touch on existing issues which may or may not exist within particular teams.  We are keen to demonstrate that effective teams should exist at all levels.  Through our practical and knowledge-based training sessions, we aim to leave teams empowered and clear about expectations. 


Our Training and CPD packages are 1/2 days - 3 days, with longer term packages available, as requested.
