We are aware of a groundswell of interest in NCELP: some schools are preparing to teach the NCELP SOW to Y7 classes from September 2020 and there is a demand for teacher CPD.  As a result, we have put together a series of self-access NCELP CPD sessions, for any teachers interested to learn more about the pedagogy.

The full series of sessions is listed, below.  The following seven sessions are already available as audio screencasts on our Resource Portal – that is, a powerpoint with a narration recorded over it to guide the user through the content.
