All successful schools have one thing in common – they are full of brilliant teachers. This doesn’t happen by chance. If schools are to develop their teachers into first rate reflective and high performing practitioners, they need a varied and personalised CPD programme – based on collaboration and sharing best practice. This book looks at how schools can move away from the ‘one size fits all’ approach to CPD that still exists in a number of schools, to a CPD programme that will appeal to a range of teachers, unlocking the potential that exists within the staffroom. It’s about excellence from within. The book covers: leadership, school improvement, staff development, teaching excellence, growth mindsets and much more.

Chapters include:

  1. Why Teachers Matter – Why CPD Matters
  2. 15 Minute Forums
  3. Coaching
  4. Learning Development Groups
  5. Action Research
  6. Professional Learning Visits
  7. INSET Days and Staff Meetings
