Leading SMSC Training for Teachers


Our course, “Leading Outstanding SMSC Development: from class to whole school” is for school leaders and SMSC Lead Teachers to support you to develop strategies for incorporating spiritual, moral, social, cultural (SMSC) into their school curriculum, culture and ethos.

The course is led by experienced teacher-advisors and balances input with reflection on existing practice in school and guides you in meeting requirements for SMSC in your own school context and in identifying next steps.
