We are the adult learning arm of Transform Trust and we care about supporting all members of our community to be at our best. Our function is to ensure consistency, build expertise and capacity and to commit to quality and innovation. We offer a wide range of opportunities for professional development and networking, with a deliberate focus on leadership, adult learning and classroom teaching.

  • The deliberate Transform Applied approach of Learn It – Live It – Legacy ensures the impact of all CPD can be seen beyond the training room.  We are experienced in designing and delivering training that meets the individual needs of individuals and teams.  With an intentional balance of live and recorded CPD, we aim to provide accessible and effective CPD for all.
