The Borders Connect Approach

Our goal is to provide high quality, cost-effective, accessible training. Our courses are ideal for students who find it difficult to attend conventional college courses or training events because of other commitments, as well as for those who simply prefer the freedom offered by flexible distance learning. They may form an important part of the CPD programme within a school, allowing CPD leaders to offer an even wider range of learning opportunities.

We understand the need for on-going training and development within schools and colleges. Our range of Professional Development courses incorporate latest research and theory, while retaining a strong practical focus. The aim is to provide a powerful suite of ideas, techniques and skills that students can put into action immediately.

Our Courses and Tutors

Each of our courses comprise approximately 28 hours of study. Each course includes unique study material prepared by experts, a course textbook, and full tutorial support from an experienced tutor. All of our tutors are specialists in their chosen area, with relevant qualifications and experience.

Our courses are supplied in a sturdy A4 binder and printed in full colour. However, you can choose to have your course delivered direct to your e-mail inbox if you prefer to work completely online (Pdf).

On successful completion of your course you will receive a Borders Connect Certificate of Course Completion.

We can accept credit card payments online or over the instant chat, or, if you prefer you can pay by Standing Order, or we can invoice your school or college directly – please instant chat or email to let us know your requirements.
