A free CPD programme has been put together for ECTs, transitional NQTs and RQTs by the PACE Team. These bitesize remote sessions will commence from January 2022 and run until July 2022.

These sessions are optional, pick and mix which you want to attend and are free for all ECTs, transitional NQTs and RQTs.

All sessions are to be held on Teams.

We have introduced a closing date for bookings as that will help our PACE Colleagues when organising the final planning of the sessions. All sessions do have a minimum number of participants attached which vary depending on the PACE Colleague. So please do get your bookings in as early as possible.

To book places on any of these sessions please email
