Professional Development & Accreditation

Area Learning Communities are diverse and they collaborate in different ways.

The SCDL Training Menu therefore contains a range of modules to allow you to create a programme that is bespoke to the needs and character of shared classrooms in your Area Learning Community and in your school. Project staff consult with you to agree your exact training and support requirements. Funding for sub cover and travel expenses are provided. Forms can be downloaded from the Admin section.

SCDL has a team of independent facilitators who come from a variety of backgrounds including:

  • Community Relations and Youth Work
  • Teaching
  • Curriculum Development
  • Area Learning Community coordination
  • Leadership and Management
  • Mediation
  • Conflict resolution
  • Research and evaluation

SCDL will assign facilitators with the most relevant background to work with you according to your needs and interests.
