Some of what we have done:

One such seminar took place in the British Council School in Madrid. Experienced teachers already working in the school took part in a mentor training weekend run by professional trainers from a British university, who travelled out from the U.K to run the weekend course. The course was free and lunch was provided for the delegates. Two previous training seminars took place in the International School of Madrid.

PGCESpain, also provided mentor training for a further 50 teachers, in Cambridge House Community College, Valencia.

We have delivered various free courses including a training seminar on “Differentiation” which took place in Sevilla at St George’s School and was led by Dr Anne Convery from the University of Nottingham. Our last course was led by Sarah King the headteacher of St George’s Barcelona on “good classroom practice”.

Additionally, we offer schools the opportunity to request a development course they may need. Therein, our specialised trainers work with the school and teaching staff to tailor each course to their individual requirements and provide the specific course they wish delivered. Therefore, providing a personalised training course for the individual school, because we know that not every school is the same.

PGCESpain is committed to developing Continuous Professional Development and increased career opportunities to teachers throughout Spain, working in British and International schools. They offer advice to trainees regarding correct contractual arrangements and aim to support professional teachers throughout their careers.

``What a great start of the term! The Behaviour Management workshop for
primary and secondary teachers with Shona was refreshing and full of
practical advice. Shona was very responsive to our needs and adapted the
content as we went along. A very dynamic and fun presenter! Highly
