2010-11 CPD Courses now confirmed

We have now confirmed our range of CPD courses for the next year offering introductory Global Citizenship and Sustainable Development Education courses and also more specific courses for different age groups e.g. Early Years or themes e.g. UNCRC.  Fuller details can be found on our CPD Course page.  Courses are available centrally through Aberdeen Education - note that most (but not all) of these courses have to be booked directly through Aberdeen Education CPD Department.  Courses can also be brought to individual schools or clusters across the north-east of Scotland.
