CPD for the whole school community

Welcome to Forge CPD, non-profit making organisation. Our vision is to bring together the fractured educational world and strengthen partnerships locally and nationally by providing a central repository of knowledge and content which every partner contributes to, and benefits from. We aim to provide a core offer of high quality, evidence informed, professional development for all members of the school community at every stage of their career. This is just the beginning; content will grow as more partners come on board and new materials are created. We look forward to working with you in the future to develop your staff to deliver the best possible offer for your pupils.

For more information about how to become a member to access all our content, contact us here.

Picture This! 2022

This year sees the full return of Picture This! and we will be studying a theme rather than a picture for Picture This!  With the Women's Euros coming to Rotherham, we have combined the two events and have decided on a theme of Movement.   Movement adds excitement, drama, and overall compositional interest to an artwork.  An artist can direct how a viewer's eye moves around an image by arranging its elements in a certain way.  The launch to this year's project has taken place and you can access the workshop materials here.

The Dark Web Explained


This resource has been developed by the National Crime Agency in collaboration with The Children's Society and Marie Collins Foundation in response to recommendations from professionals and from research which found that many professionals, parents and carers do not understand the Dark Web and feel unequipped to talk to a young person about it should the need arise.

More than any other subject, English – and especially reading – gives pupils access to the rest of the curriculum and is fundamental to their educational success. This is why the introduction to the national curriculum says: ‘Fluency in the English language is an essential foundation for success in all subjects’

The South Yorkshire Guarantee has been produced in collaboration by partners across Sheffield, Rotherham, Barnsley and Doncaster. It is designed to offer schools the tools to reflect on and review practice, which then result in actions and plans to develop Reading for Pleasure, early reading and phonics.
