The St Giles’ Centre is developing a range of professional learning support materials for teachers and schools in Wrexham , which are also freely accessible to any individual or organisation outside the county borough. These support materials are presented in a variety of formats.
Professional Learning support materials currently include:
- The Professional Learning Series;
- Example resources for teachers.
The Professional Learning Series
The St Giles’ Centre Professional Learning Series is a collection of professional learning PowerPoints and other resources, which you may use within your own contexts. For schools in the local authority, we can also offer tailored ‘in person’ interactive presentations of the material, either online or face to face. New titles are regularly being developed and will be posted on this page.
