SSCE Cymru CPD Training JUNE

28/06/2021 29/06/2021

SSCE Cymru is offering all schools in Wales, an opportunity to participate in one of our monthly CPD sessions timetabled during the last week of each month.

If you are a school in Wales with Service children on roll, we encourage you to sign up to one of our training sessions. The training is suitable for a small number of key staff from each school, who would benefit from understanding the needs of Service children in greater depth.

Please make sure you have spoken to your Regional School Liaison Officer (RSLO) prior to attending a session. If you have not yet spoken to your RSLO, please get in touch with us at so that we can direct you to the appropriate team member.

The two-hour session includes lots of opportunities for discussion, feedback and questions around the experiences of Service children and actions the school can take to embed good practice.
