CPD takes many forms and as well as organising structured programmes to meet specific training needs, S7 has also developed a range of events. These provide an opportunity for professional updating, reflection and networking and serve to highlight the focus on driving teaching and learning forwards across the network.

Regular conferences include:

Support Staff Conference 
A biennial conference for staff in non-teaching roles that focuses on updating about recent sector developments and honing skills and knowledge in specific areas of work.

Senior Managers Conference 
An annual opportunity to debate issues and agree ideas and proposals for the consortium going forward. Includes SMT from Surrey and Sussex 6th form colleges.

Other events include the biennial Teaching and Learning conference. Past conferences have been held at local universities and featured key note speeches from leading educationalists.
