The story (so far)
Co-founder and early years advisor Graham wanted to provide high quality online professional development to the thousands of early years practitioners he had been supporting over the last 6 years. He wanted to ensure that he was meeting the DFE requirements for professional development but he couldn’t find an all in one solution that allowed him to provide virtual training, filled with engaging content that was still 100% flexible while still allowing for collaboration between delegates and trainers.
After discussions with other consultants and local authorities it was clear they were using a mixture of outdated, impractical and time consuming methods not designed for the education sector. We identified the need for a more advanced online platform to empower consultants for the modern needs of schools and teachers. In 2020 MyCPDGroup was founded with the belief that giving more practitioners better access to expert consultants will be a driving force for improvement in education.
