Our ECT CPD program provides context for Immanuel college, our program is tailored to the needs of each trainee, our 2-year program develops colleagues with career stage relevant pedagogy and practical developments, all CPD sessions are delivered by experienced and highly skilled colleagues. 

All ECT’s benefit from a strong package of pedagogical and pastoral support, all ECT’s have the opportunity to network with other colleagues at the staff lunch and as a Christian school, every ECT is supported by a wealth of pastoral and well-being support from our chaplaincy team.
