REAL Trust

Rochdale Education and Learning (REAL) Trust is an award winning limited company and charitable trust, established in 2001 for schools, to provide them with a “one stop shop” and brokerage service for their staff’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD) needs. Along with identifying and sharing best practice, the REAL Trust aims to advance education by providing education professionals with the opportunity to access high quality training courses, conferences, curriculum development and collaborative learning groups.

The programme that we deliver is developed in response to consultation with our members – we aim to provide the opportunities that they need and value the most, saving them the time and high cost of locating and funding these courses independently. Everything that we do is informed and shaped by our members and that has contributed to our success – we see schools as partners in, not recipients of, delivery. Resources are focused on targeted programmes with real impact.
