CPLD, or ‘Continuing Professional and Leadership Development’ provision is the means by which professionals in the education sector maintain, improve and broaden their knowledge and skills through activity, which is intended to be of direct benefit to the individual, or school and aim to improve the quality of outcomes of children and young people.
As hubs of education improvement, Teaching Schools have experience of working in collaboration with other schools, and with other partners, in the planning, design, development, delivery and evaluation of CPLD provision. The Teaching school approach to CPLD:
- is strategic
- addresses the career needs of their staff, and the wider school system, from ITT through to Senior and Executive Leadership
- ensures participants are engaging in a range of high quality courses, subject networks and coaching to raise standards.
