Welcome to the RoSIS CPD Directory for schools and academies from September 2021.  This Directory has, and will continue to be, developed in consultation with headteachers and, together with the RoSIS Offer, is designed to help all schools and academies move towards achieving our Rotherham School Improvement Partnership mission:

  • all pupils making at least good progress;

  • no underperforming cohorts;

  • all teachers delivering at least good learning; and

  • all schools moving to at least the next level of successful performance.


Within this year’s RoSIS offer, you will find a range of CPD opportunities facilitated or delivered by our team of professionally qualified and experienced Teaching & Learning Consultants and Associate Leaders.  Working closely with practitioners and leaders in schools, this workforce will continue to provide additional value and expertise to the local schools-led improvement system. 

The CPD opportunities have been aligned to the Standard for teachers’ professional development (2016) which is based on the following characteristics:

  1. Professional development should have a focus on improving and evaluating pupil outcomes.

  2. Professional development should be underpinned by robust evidence and expertise.

  3. Professional development should include collaboration and expert challenge.

  4. Professional development programmes should be sustained over time.And all this is underpinned by, and requires that:

  5. Professional development must be prioritised by school leadership.


In addition, once again we have also linked our new offer to these other standards:

  • Teachers’ Standards (2013)

  • Professional standards for teaching assistants (2016)


Full details of our CPD offer, along with costs and booking arrangements, are set out in the Directory and are available to any school or academy whether based in Rotherham or elsewhere.  For those schools and academies that have opted to subscribe to the RoSIS Offer in full, most of the CPD opportunities in the Directory are included as part of your subscription fee without further charges or limitation on the number of staff that want to attend.


We hope that you find the learning opportunities within this brochure a valuable contribution towards meeting your school improvement needs and we look forward to continue working together in partnership with you through the next academic year.
