Department of Education

International CPD

The Department of Education at the University of Sussex has a long history of offering bespoke international educational consultancy services, especially in areas of teacher development and educational leadership. It provides educational internship both in the UK and overseas, and our programmes range from a single weekend to a whole year. In offering such service, ESW draws on the diverse background and rich expertise of its faculty, which spans all levels of study (from early years to higher education) and geographical locations.

They also benefit from the availability of mentors - within schools and at the University. Such tailored professional guidance helps bridge theory and practice and supports practitioner research around areas of particular interest.
