Cariad's vision is to develop our workforce by providing essential continual professional development to ESP candidates and to schools. This ranges from supporting teachers entering the profession wishing to complete their induction period through working with ESP daily; more experienced teachers seeking to use our agency to provide them with day to day or longer-term work and those re-entering the profession after periods in other sectors of work or taking breaks for personal or family reasons.
Cariad Training was formed due to the desire to improve the training available for education supply staff across South Wales. Established In 2017, Cariad Training aims to close the gap between the training their staff received in comparison to direct employees. Cariad Training is Part of the ESP group, a sister company to Education Supply Pool.
Cariad training offers its candidates subsidised or free training in several curriculum areas - Literacy, Numeracy, Additional Learning Needs, Wellbeing and Safeguarding. Candidates undertake this training during the school holidays at our training base in Newport. Evaluations are very positive, and staff appreciate the support given by ESP and how much they are valued.
