Professional Development

splash-Home-Banner-Icon.png Empowering Staff

Make a difference right across the Trust by delivering rich and engaging training from inductions through to compliance responsibilities. Staff benefit from CPD opportunities whilst feeling protected by role-specific training that supports day-to-day decision making and confidence in handling difficult situations.

People are your greatest asset and investment in them will help the MAT to achieve set goals. There are two levels to this...

Promoting a culture of learning

Promoting a culture of teaching and sharing

Promoting a culture of learning

Putting staff across your MAT in control of their own development and professional journey is a powerful way to encourage trust-wide growth and improvement. At the same time, giving your staff access to rich training and development opportunities - a great way to make them feel valued and promote job satisfaction.

Frog’s Professional Development Platform supports increased opportunities for learning and development for staff. Access to training anytime, anywhere means staff can learn in ways and at times that work for them. With training delivered in easy-to-consume bitesize chunks, they can fit learning around busy schedules.

Promoting a culture of teaching and sharing

Staff time is precious. It is important to use it wisely.

Across all schools, staff can learn so much from each other and foster a culture of teaching and sharing which is hugely beneficial.

Let’s look at a handful of examples...

To support with staff training...
Central HR spends several hours with every new starter, to cover elements of their induction.
With Frog...
All new starters have their induction online. If they do meet with HR, it is in a short, focused meeting for a friendly introduction and to cover any questions they may have.
To support with staff training...
Your DPO runs refresher training on data protection and the GDPR once ayear, to all schools across the MAT. New starters need to be trained throughout the year on an ad-hoc basis.
With Frog...
All members of staff (permanent and temporary) access training online, and an audit of staff training gives evidence for ongoing whole-school compliance.
To support with staff training...
Your central IT team delivers regular sessions to staff across the Trust, on how to use Microsoft, Google and a variety of software applications to support their job.
With Frog...
The team delivers this training online and makes available to all staff to access as and when they choose. Teachers access the training when they need it, and the IT Team can getback to looking after the technology.
To support with staff training...
Members of the HR team run workshops throughout the year, making sure all staff are looked after with pay, pensions, policies and procedures.
With Frog...
Staff are assigned the latest training on the PDP and guided to upload administrative documents where necessary.
To support with staff training...
A programme of leadership courses is run throughout the year, for members of the Senior Management Teams in all schools to improve their skills and understanding.
With Frog...
The programme of leadership courses is made available to everyone, including teachers and support staff across the MAT, who want to strengthen knowledge and skills for their own professional development.
To support with staff training...
The SEND coordinator visits schools and offers lunchtime and twilight sessions for all staff, on everything from Dyslexia and ADHD, through to Autism, Aspergers and Visual Disabilities. These drop-ins are free for anyone to attend.
With Frog...
With training opportunities now online, the SEND coordinator can offer a richer, broader range of courses and more staff able to access them – meaning SEND students will benefit increasingly from improved levels of knowledge and understanding throughout the school.
To support with staff training...
A leading Maths teacher from one of your schools runs regular CPD sessions for schools across the Trust,to raise attainment in Maths through a range of pedagogical approaches.
With Frog...
CPD delivered by leading lights such as this Maths teacher can be consumed by your staff today and into the future – giving your leading teachers time back, to continue to develop new and ever-more innovative training, in line with the latest pedagogical developments.
To support with staff training...
The Head of Science in one school runs half-termly subject training sessions for TAs, to maximise the support they can give in the classroom.
With Frog...
The MAT runs with this idea and coordinates subject leaders across the Trust, to produce TA training for all subjects. This training can now beassigned to TAs quickly and easily, year after year. It is easier to move TAs across subjects and maximise the value of their support.

There is no limit to how you deliver training through Frog, to all schools and staff. As time goes on, your PDP will become richer to enable more fantastic training opportunities available to every member of staff.

Your culture of learning and development will continue to grow for the benefit of all staff and students, now and into the future.
