Focus Education is a family run company based in the North of England celebrating our 25th anniversary. We provide a variety of reputable CPD courses, educational publications, downloads and software, and bespoke education consultancy for leaders, teachers and teaching assistants in primary schools. We are a trusted provider for primary schools in the UK and internationally. We are proud of the work we do to support primary schools.
We make sure that we work with your school to make productive changes and improvements for pupils and staff. We believe all children should be given the opportunity to grow, develop and achieve within their primary education setting.
We understand school budgets are tight, so we have set up the Focus Hub Initiative to continue to support primary schools by providing CPD courses, but at reduced prices.

Some of the areas covered within Focus inset consultancy and courses are: The National Curriculum, OfSTED, Headteacher Inspection Training, NQT support, mastery and greater depth in the classroom, teacher training, and school leadership.
