Professional development should be at the core of what schools do. If we're serious about improving outcomes for learners, then we have to continually improve the quality of our teaching.

This unit focuses on the skills needed for effective training and the fundamentals you'll want to embed in all CPD sessions.

This resource is suitable for new CPD leaders or those who want to refresh their skills – from directors of CPD and headteachers to teachers moving into a training role.

It applies to both primary and secondary contexts: if you're interested in planning and delivering CPD better, this is for you.

Most of the activities can be done on screen, but we also suggest opportunities for you to collaborate and discuss with colleagues.
