Developing inspirational teachers and leaders

HMC’s Professional Development (PD) service provides unparalleled quality of training and professional development for teachers and leaders in our schools. Training and professional development are highly contextualised, catering specifically for the needs of leaders and staff in independent schools, and HMC schools in particular.

The service aims to encourage and support excellence in teaching, learning and school leadership through the 65 courses it provides each year. The HMCPD Programme of events is also open to members of other independent school associations beyond HMC.

The purpose of HMCPD is to:

Provide services to support the professional development of existing Heads.

Provide services to support the professional development of key individuals in members’ schools so that they can provide support for their Heads to the best effect.

Provide services and opportunities to support the professional development of high quality school leaders on the pathway to headship so that the future of HMC as the association of heads of leading independent schools is assured.
