New on Candidate Space – your Learning Zone

We’re always working on ways to improve our services to you – so over the summer, we’ve been busy working to bring our candidates a brand new feature within Candidate Space!

The Learning Zone contains exclusive resources, courses and learning materials, all free of charge to our candidates – as well as a personalised live tracker to record your CPD.

Supporting your Continuing Professional Development

We recommend all our candidates undertake a minimum of 15 hours CPD over the course of a year. To support you in this, we’ve stocked the Learning Zone with free training, courses and learning materials – and even your personal live tracker to record your progress.

  • Track your CPD with our live tracker – easily upload certificates or add self-directed learning
  • Watch videos produced exclusively for us by experts in the sector
  • Access free Level 2 courses provided by The Skills Network
  • Read up on learning planning, inspection preparation, and view our updated guide to Learning Support


  • Exclusive training videos on Lesson Planning and Behaviour Management from Teacher Toolkit
  • Free level 2 courses on a variety of topics provided through our partnership with The Skills Network


  • Protocol’s Learning Support: A Practical Guide to help you support students with a variety of learning difficulties


  • On demand sessions focussing on the new Assessor roles by Assessing expert Hilary Read

We’ll be adding new resources over the coming months – so keep an eye out!
