Our Smart School Council Masterclass CPD helps our members to embed the Smart School Council approach. Working with other schools on the programme, the course will help you regardless of what stage you are at:

  • Start your journey to become a Smart School Council.

  • Fine-tune and improve your Smart School Council and give it more momentum

  • Embedding excellent practice to become an Ambassador school

This CPD is fully tailored to the needs of your school and where you are in your Smart School Council journey. It will give you a clear structure to make your school council fully inclusive and build on your current approach. It will also make it easier to run and help you to engage other staff in helping you.

Based on our student voice research for the Children’s Commissioner and working with our 360 member schools, our school council experts will introduce our approach, talk you through the tools we use and give you a network of schools to get support.

The CPD was a revelation! I met with a range of teachers all with some responsibility for school council/student voice, from a variety of settings and with a range of experience. The training we took part in was fast paced, fun, and above all had practical application for back at school

Ofsted Report - Burnage Academy for Boys 2018. Rated Outstanding

“Leaders ensure that pupils have a strong voice in the running of their school. For example, all pupils are expected to contribute to the work of the school council.

Small groups undertake activities in response to priorities recommended and voted on by pupils. Similarly, some of the clubs offered by the school are run by pupils as a service to others.”
