Professional development should be at the core of what schools do, but unfortunately, ineffective CPD is common.
Too often, 'doing' CPD is seen as the end goal, rather than the long-lasting changes in teachers' practice that CPD should ultimately enable.
The training is intended for CPD leaders to study themselves for their own personal and professional development.
Most of the activities can be done on screen, but we also suggest opportunities for you to collaborate and discuss with colleagues.
