Thursday Morning Thriller

Thursday Morning Thrillseeker logo

The Thursday Morning Thriller is a 15 minute micro CPD session run every Thursday morning between 7.45 – 8.00am.  The aim of the sessions are to give people an opportunity to engage with regular CPD that is lead by an existing practitioner within the school.  For those who are presenting the brief is simple:  share an element of practice that is working for you and give people something they can pick up and use either that day or in the next week.  There are free bacon rolls and coffee for those who attend!  If you would like to attend a session please book using the eventbrite link either here or to the left of the page. If you would like to present please get in touch using the form below.  I would love to secure a colleague or colleagues from another school who could present here….could you be that person? I will list the sessions below and link each to the relevant post once it has been blogged so that people have easy access to the archive of presentations.
