The Oxford Diocesan Board of Education vision for education is founded on flourishing. We aim to walk alongside you as you develop your school’s effectiveness and live out your vision of service to  families, staff and community. This Development, Training and Support offer enhances our S4S (Services for Schools) service level agreement which heavily subsidises the courses and networks we run.

The programme is grouped into three areas:

  • DTS for schools – CPD to support work in schools, including SIAMS
  • DTS Leadership – for serving headteachers and aspirant leaders at all levels
  • DTS Governance – including an online introduction to our new three module governance programme

The ODBE team has increased the use of virtual means of contact and all our bookings are through ‘Eventbrite’ using the live links for each course or event. Where an event has a link to Teams or Zoom, please do not share this with others so that we can manage the numbers logging in and ensure that we have the correct details for payment.

Please ensure that the delegates own email is entered to Eventbrite as this is how the link will be sent to them.

As well as the central dates offered here, advisers can provide Essentials for your school using S4S credit in: Vision, Church Schools in Modern Britain, Worship, Spirituality, SIAMS, RE, Chaplaincy, and Church School Relationships. Please speak to your Link Adviser to arrange this.

Please note all governor training is costed as ‘per school’ – with up to three attendees.

As ever, in the case of DTS queries, please contact Donna Finlay or your Link Adviser.
