Professional Development

CES Professional Development helps districts, schools, and individuals improve educator and student performance with open enrollment events; tailored, site-based learning; Professional Learning Communities (PLCs); coaching and consulting.

CES face to face workshops for professionals are usually 1-2 days in length, featuring engaging, expert instructors and classroom-ready strategies and tools that attendees can apply right away.

We offer a number of new fully online workshops - you can attend from anywhere, often with more flexible timing than our traditional face to face events.

We also offer CES Intensives: courses that focus on deep transformative experiences via multiple means of learning, hands on work on your own projects, and engagement with peers as well as your own team in a highly collaborative process.

Our Approach to Professional Development

We work to focus on challenges/tough problems that are important to teachers; bringing you transformational, research-based practices and perspectives; and preparing educators to work with diverse groups in an inclusive way, and to address how students learn at all stages of development.

Content Area Expertise

CES has developed specialized expertise in a number of key content areas to support educators and leaders, schools, districts and the students they serve. CES consultants offer site-based services including tailored training and learning experiences, and coaching and observation.
