Improving education across Dorset by placing brilliant people in front of our children

Our passion is developing teaching and learning for everyone. We are fortunate enough to work alongside a variety of schools, experienced colleagues, new teachers and those in the early stages of making plans or training to join this rewarding career.

working in partnership with the University of Worcester - Outstanding in teacher training

I feel very fortunate to work alongside such a wealth of experience and enthusiasm for teaching. I am excited to have the opportunity to support such a variety of learners (big and small) on their individual journeys.

– Lou Evans,
CLN Director

I can’t thank you enough for your continued support and encouragement throughout this year.  Without your guidance and strength, this journey would have been tough. You have helped us ‘seeds’ grow into wonderful teachers.  Signing up for Castleman has changed my life!

Former Trainee

Training with CLN has been a really immersive experience. The support starts from the moment you apply.  Amy and Lou are very knowledgeable, not only regarding teaching but about the needs of each, individual trainee.

Former Trainee

My experience at CLN has allowed me to develop and grow, not just professionally but personally.  I couldn’t be happier with choice of CLN as my training providers.  They have supported my well-being beyond anything I could have imagined.
