Continuing Professional Development


The school addresses teacher professional development needs through policy-led and consultation processes. CPD activities are informal and internal as well as formal and external and there is a strong culture of sharing and dissemination, particularly in relation to how these activities impact on learning. Much CPD is through and about blended learning and teaching.

Digitally focused Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities are designed around identified teacher needs as well as regional and national policy-driven imperatives or accredited courses. Often, such CPD is in-house and colleague-led with examples of innovative practice being shared and disseminated. Other CPD is often cluster-based or conducted through online forums. Much CPD is teaching and learning focused and includes blended learning.
