Ever felt like you had to be selective about the needs and goals you prioritized when planning professional development for your staff?

You only have a handful of in-service days to provide training that will help your teachers grow and improve their instruction. You know that any training you provide needs to get the buy-in of your teachers in order for the material to have any effect on student learning. Plus, you have your own professional goals for your school that will require time and investment to get your staff on board.

At Strobel Education, we believe that professional development should check all the boxes.

When you bring Strobel Education to your campus, we provide training that’s designed to meet individual teachers’ needs and equips your entire faculty to meet your goals and objectives for your school community.

Each year our consultants provide hundreds of professional development, and we specialize in creating an environment that’s full of energy, real talk, and specific practical examples that teachers find refreshing and easy to implement.

We make it our mission to get your teachers excited about getting back in the classroom with the resources they need and getting you results that will make a difference in student success.

Our On-site Training provides opportunities for your staff to…

Discover effective teaching strategies

We provide a context for teachers to learn from our consultants and glean from the wealth of knowledge and skills that already exist among your staff.

Collaborate and build synergy

Our discussions and activities are designed to guide teachers as they learn, exchange ideas, and share their own strategies that have achieved results.

Cultivate a collective vision

Prioritize growth and improvement together so that students are the true benefactors of our joint efforts.

We customize professional learning to meet the needs of your staff and your schedule.

Here’s what our On-site Training can look like on your campus…

Full Day or Half Day Training

Schedule one of our highly interactive, customized training sessions for your next teacher in-service day.

PLC Sessions

Have one of our consultants provide in-person professional learning within your staff’s PLC schedule.

Before / After School Training

Let one of our consultants provide training during a faculty meeting either before or after school.

And here’s the best part…

With each training, we provide lesson plans, activities, and resources to help your staff implement new learning the very next day.

We know it can be challenging to apply new methods and concepts after a full day of professional learning. That’s why we provide your staff with a digital resource bundle that includes everything they need to use the frameworks and strategies we teach.

As part of the training, our consultants demonstrate how to use these resources so that teachers will feel confident and equipped to use them in their classrooms while their learning is still top of mind.

Your teachers will walk away with tools and knowledge so their professional learning impacts not only their instruction but also student success.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most of our sessions have been designed as full-day trainings (approx. six hours). But we can customize any presentation to fit the time you have allocated.

At times, we can honor last-minute requests, but the earlier you book, the better chance you have of securing your date. Many schools book 6 – 12 months in advance, especially for multi-day training and initiatives.

We are very flexible and understand you have certain scheduling challenges at times. Depending on your needs, we can do a full-day training with the entire staff, two half-day sessions with different groups, 45-minute grade-level rotations, PLC times, or mini-lesson modeling. We also do before or after-school meetings.
 

After we’ve confirmed a date and time, we’ll send an email the week of the training with all the information and any accompanying materials. On the day of the training you will need to provide:

  • A suitable learning environment, including tables and chairs for our consultant and participants
  • A projector and large screen
  • Wifi
  • Speaker system (if necessary)
  • Microphone (if the training is for a large crowd) 
  • Printouts of the digital resources we will send via email two weeks before the training.

With written notice, your onsite professional development day may be rescheduled for a future date within the same school year up to 60 days before the designated date. However, the contract must be paid in full by the first original selected date

 

Your Strobel Education consultant will email you two weeks prior to the training and include a PDF handout to be printed out for your participants’ use. If you prefer, an interactive digital version will also be made available. If this is the route taken, please make sure laptops or tablets are made available.

Generally, we create an invoice after the training day occurs. Then, payment is expected approximately 30 days via a check. Sometimes, schools ask us to send an invoice in advance, and we are happy to do so if that works best.

After securing your date, you’ll receive a contract that includes the date, time, topics, and goals of your training.

Approximately three weeks before your training, your assigned Strobel Education consultant will reach out to you to review the goals and outcomes for the day to ensure your needs are being met.

Yes, some schools find follow-up coaching very valuable to them. You can request virtual or more on-site coaching days to help keep everyone on track, achieve accountability, and provide the support needed to implement successfully.
