Professional Development

Discover ways to develop your classroom practice and pedagogy

What we mean by CPD

When we talk about continuing professional development or CPD, we mean the ongoing activities that a teacher undertakes to improve their classroom practice and pedagogy. These activities are particularly effective when they involve collaboration, and teachers plan lessons based on knowledge and materials shared and developed by them, their peers, and experts.

Collaboration is also more likely to lead to improvement across a department or school. That’s why the Work Group model of professional development puts as much emphasis on a teacher’s routine practice in school as it does on out-of-school activity. And it’s why we encourage all teachers to join a Maths Hub Work Group so they and their school can embed change that lasts.
