As learning leaders, career-long professional development for teachers is central to creating and maintaining a world-class education system. As a College, Stranmillis is committed to delivering high-quality, practitioner-focused educational research and scholarship and we have built a strong reputation that is shaping innovative educational practice and helping unlock the potential of children and young people.
At the heart of our research strategy is a focus on ensuring that our research has an impact not only on teaching and education practitioners, but beyond academia in delivering economic, social and cultural benefits. The College continues to pioneer imaginative, creative and engaging initiatives and projects across a broad range of pedagogy and subject areas, in both existing areas of specialism and emerging multi-disciplinary areas that reflect the recognised needs of our society.
Our Development Day model provides schools and local learning communities with the building blocks to create a highly flexible approach to professional development. You can choose to focus on a number of units or select core themes that address different developmental needs. Alternatively, talk to our CPD team who can help develop and build a day, bespoke half-day or session around your specific school or learning partnership. Potential topic areas for development days that Stranmillis has strong research and scholarship credentials for include:
Special Educational Needs
Social Emotional and Behaviourial Difficulties
Early years leadership
Wellbeing in early years
Pillars of practice
Technology in the classroom
Self-evaluation and planning
Vision and Values
Planning and capacity building
