Education Show 2010 – a rich source of CPD

The CPD seminar programme is now finalised for the Education Show 2010, the UK’s largest showcase of educational resources, best practice methods and CPD training. The programme brings together the leading education experts and practitioners for the three day show, which takes place from 4 to 6 March 2010 at NEC Birmingham and is free to attend.
The seminar programme at the Education Show offers a budget-friendly way of ensuring continuous professional development for educationalists, with over 80 seminars and workshops designed to meet the needs of educationalists across all subjects and stages of education. The chosen sessions will be delivered by leading practitioners and address some of the most pressing issues within education; from Assessing Pupil’s Progress (APP), literacy and numeracy to inclusion and personalised education.

Richard Joslin, exhibitor director of show organisers, Emap, comments: “The Education Show has maintained its success over the years because it is so much more than just an exhibition; the show offers fantastic CPD opportunities for teachers. The seminar programme has been developed carefully to enable teachers and support staff to discover the latest research and teaching techniques and explore best practice.  With the challenges that we all face in the current economic climate, we felt it was important for the show to offer decision makers – whether teachers, school governors or local authority staff – the easiest way to explore the most cost-effective solutions to meet the needs of their school and their learners.”

Key Government agencies such as the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) and the Qualifications Curriculum and Development Agency (QCDA), will be at the show to enable visitors to keep abreast of the latest policy and initiative news, making this one of the most useful days in the school and local authority calendar. Additional cost-saving opportunities include free product training and the travel subsidy scheme, which is available for groups of ten or more staff travelling in excess of 50 miles to the NEC courtesy of the sector’s trade association, BESA.
Seminars should be booked online at after registering for free to avoid disappointment, as many are over-subscribed. The cost is £12 + VAT per session, an incredibly cost-effective method of maintaining professional advancement at a time when education is changing rapidly.
