Professional Development Courses

Schools can initially register one delegate for five of the eight training courses but they may also include the names of reserve delegates for any or all of the remaining courses.

If available, places will be assigned to the reserve delegates after the registration period is closed.

All training courses are limited to 30 places and will be assigned on a first come first served basis. Schools are requested to book the courses with the name of the teachers attending as the first option and the reserve options by the 30th of January 2020. The reserve delegates will be confirmed by Wednesday 5th of February.

These courses are funded through each school’s “bonificaciones”, that is, the courses are paid for and then refunded to the school from reductions in the social security payments (TC1/2) Delegates must attend for both days and sign the training course attendance form at the end of the session on Sunday at 12 noon. Failure to do this will result in the funding from the TC1/2 not being available.

  2. Training course 2: “Meeting the Challenges of KS2/KS3 Maths” Alan Jervis.

Coffee breaks on Saturday and Sunday, lunch on Saturday and the Saturday evening cocktail are provided for delegates in the exhibition hall. NABSS covers the cost of these for the two school representatives and up to five training course delegates.

If schools are assigned places to their reserve delegates, they will be requested to pay 60€ for their sixth and any further delegates, to cover the cost of refreshments.
