Professional Development, Coaching and Support for Jewish Studies and Ivrit Teachers

PaJeS provides an annual programme of ongoing professional development opportunities, workshops, and one-to-one support and coaching for Jewish Studies and Modern Hebrew teachers and subject leaders in UK schools.

This includes Chumash and Ivrit curriculum focussed training and workshops, training and support for new teachers, Hebrew Reading workshops, and annual Jewish Education and Ivrit conferences.

We also have a dedicated coordinator supporting our Chumash partner schools in Australia


PaJeS Developmental Support Model

As part of our provision for Jewish Studies and Ivrit teachers and departments, PaJeS offer a focused developmental model and coaching approach when observing teaching and learning. This holistic approach looks at the bigger picture and enables us to support teachers beyond the curriculum.
