At Steplab, we take implementation support seriously; that’s why we offer a whole host of support to help school leaders set up and embed effective professional development for their context.

Our Summer webinar series is open to all school leaders to help you supercharge your PD programme and answers questions such as:

  • How do I launch a culture of low-stakes lesson visits?
  • How can I train my coaching team?
  • How can I create a custom playbook?

Each webinar is led by an experienced school leader or PD expert and gives practical implementation advice rooted in evidence to help your PD programme flourish!
