Professional Development 

Dear Colleagues,

The Inservice Guide for enrolment in CEO Sydney courses, workshops and staff development days has been decommissioned. A new module of PHRIS called Enterprise Learning Management (ELM) will replace the Inservice Guide and provide a more integrated and comprehensive way of managing professional learning and training across the organisation. To enrol in professional learning and training you should now go to the main menu of PHRIS.

The CEO, Sydney has a reputation for providing many high-quality courses and programs that support personal and professional development (PD). It is committed to supporting the PD of all staff (and parents), and provides many opportunities for staff to grow and improve their own skills, knowledge and career development.

There are currently more than 1100 PD courses and programs involving more than 38,000 participants. These courses are delivered through a variety of contemporary modes and modules.
