Babcock 4S Training and Conferences provide schools and/or settings with the greatest chance of success by delivering quality Continuing Professional Development (CPD) opportunities. By attending our events, and hearing from leading educational experts, academics and commentators on the sector, we support schools and settings in their drive to raise standards, improve school performance and better outcomes for children and young people.
We support effective staff development for all phases of education, from primary and early years through to secondary, post-16 and special education. From senior leaders and governors to newly qualified teachers and support teams, we support the entire school workforce ensuring, as a result, that the learning and development needs of every member of staff are able to be met.
Our conference themes are wide-ranging and cover the latest national initiatives, alongside best practice and innovative learning. Furthermore, we address current challenges faced by Academies from a leadership, business, financial and educational perspective. Conferences provide the ideal forum to stay informed, network, share professional practice and advice and address issues faced by peers across the sector. With exhibitors present at our conferences, we also enable delegates to meet relevant suppliers.

Making your CPD budgets go that little bit further
Acknowledging the pressures schools are under in terms of funding, we have now turned the ground floor of our offices in Leatherhead into a conference facility. Where feasible, based upon the number of delegates, we are hosting a number of our one-day conferences and masterclasses at our Babcock Conference Centre. This means that we are able to invite you to come and hear from the same quality speakers but at a marginally cheaper price. Our conference centre is situated close to the M25/A3 and we have excellent, secure parking facilities onsite.
"Impressed with all facilities - great parking and great facilities inside for the conference"
"The new venue was brilliant- very comfortable"
"Fantastic venue - with ample parking. Great organisation"
